Who says getting a bit of coal is a bad thing? Two deep ovals of black onyx are set in a notched bezel setting to create these classy earrings. The silver is left its natural color to provide contrast against the darkness of the onyx. The shape of the bezel and the stone makes them look a bit like eyes. These onyx are 6 mm across and 4mm tall, making the earrings approx. 7 mm, or almost exactly .25 of an inch. The setting, post and clutch are all sterling silver with 925 stamped on the post. These earrings are shown in a bright finish but are available in a semi-matte finish upon request. Your bit of coal will be shipped gift-wrapped.
