A long rectangular slab of onyx forms this superb little Victorian brooch. The crisp, glittering onyx bar is set with three little 14k gold stars. The eight-pointed stars are set with tiny white natural pearls. The pin secures with a gold safety clasp. Elegant and graphic. Circa 1880.

Queen Victoria was in mourning for her husband for decades; as a result mourning attire became fashionable in society. Jet and onyx were the most prestigious materials used in mourning jewelry. 

Details.....The brooch measures 0.32" by 2.16". In Very Good Antique condition. You should always expect some wear on vintage and antique jewels, we consider it a part of their charm.
