Indian Tribal silver earrings. Old/antique. Large. Fine & sterling silver 925
The earrings are old silver pendants which have been made and worn by the tribal gypsy people of Rajasthan in Northern India. They are somewhere between 50 - 100 years old, and are extremely pure fine silver (98%). The 2 pendants were originally part of a tribal headset. I have matched them, and added sterling silver hooks to convert them into earrings.
The old silver pieces are 17 mm across and 32mm high, including the hoop. The earrings are just over 4cm long, from the top of the ear hooks.
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 unusual jewellery.
Every item will be sent beautifully packaged in a cotton gift bag made especially for me by a women's self help group in India.
