A very peculiar, luscious pair of Vulcanite earrings, these chunky archeological revival jewels offer a most peculiar presence as they marry two materials often used in imitation of one another.
Vulcanite has often been sold as “Whitby Jet,” Whitby Jet in turn, was (during moments of market demand) offered as Vulcanite- but if you are a fan of both, you can see them harmoniously existing in these light-as-a-feather duo. The shiny, sleek lustered boules of Whitby Jet, create a garland across the center of these geometrically designed earrings.
