Indian tribal silver earrings. Old/antique. Large. Fine & sterling silver 925
This is a striking pair of old silver/antique silver earrings from India
The large pendants have been been made and worn by the tribal gypsy people of Rajasthan in Northern India. They are 50 - 150 years old, and are made of extremely pure silver (98%). The 2 pieces were originally part of a tribal headset. I have matched them, and added secure sterling silver leverback hooks to convert them into earrings.
The old silver pendants are 2 cm across amd 3 cm high including the hoop. From the top of the ear hooks the earrings are 5cm long (2").
I am the designer of these earrings and I have put them together with my own hands. I have been making my living exclusively from designing and making jewellery for 9 years. I travel every year to seek out old and tribal silver from Asia and India along with semi-precious stones. Back at home in Brighton, England, I make these loose pieces up into beautiful and unusal jewellery.
Every item will be send beautifully packaged in a cotton gift bag made especially for me by a women's self help group in India.
