    Both of these items were $50 each. The mourning bar is onyx with 14k gold. Quite a bit bigger than others I have seen at about 14 grams. The clasp has evidently replaced with a more modern safety clasp. Small chip on the top right corner but you can't see it. Someone wanted to buy this from me at $150 but it's my only one so I declined!

    Now these are some modified Victorian earrings and are 14k. Not great condition, some enamel missing, two seed pearls gone on one

    Those look like a cuff link that got repurposed. The could also have been cuff buttons and someone sliced the back button bit off.

    They are beautiful, spart. Clasps are often replaced, that is no problem. It is a gorgeous bar.
    I'm with evelyb, the earrings were originally cuff links or cuff buttons.
