They feature two genuine marquise black onyx gemstones, and vintage styling. The surmounts on these earrings are french lever backs for pierced ears. Suspended from the surmounts are two beautiful black onyx gems, which are surrounded by a gold frame. These vintage earring are versatile enough for the evening or daytime wear.

History: In ancient times, people wore black onyx as a talisman for its tremendous spiritual benefits to ward off negative energy and evil. Therefore, many people called it the stone of the warriors because of its healing, protective and strength-providing properties.

The history of gold-filled jewellery traces back to early 19th century England, where this technique was patented to create semi-precious and better-quality costume  jewellery during the Victorian Era. 

Gold-filled is not an alloy. It is a layered material constructed in two or three layers. The core metal is jewelers' brass; though, in the past, sterling silver was sometimes used instead. Single clad gold-filled has all the gold content in a single layer on one side.
