Gentle Daisies: Victorian French Jet Earrings

The Victorians used flowers as symbols for words and feelings. Daisies meant gentleness and innocence. This pair of French Jet earrings have black faceted petals with the floral seed section faceted as well. French Jet, similar to Vauxhall Glass, was a material used in jewelry during Queen Victoria's period of mourning for Prince Albert. That was 140 years ago. Today we think of these earrings as cheerful, lovely and feminine, light on the ear. Excellent condition
