Description

A wonderful marriage of vintage Eastern European carnelian earrings paired up with North African silver bi-cones. The earrings were originally worn very close to the ear, a hook so small it gave the appearance of a post earring. I loved the wonderful scallop and the gorgeous cabochon. I think the stone may be glass and the earrings were made in the 30's or 40's. The fab bicone beads are from North Africa. Big and lightweight, a silver alloy which includes aluminum. Attractive surface and patina. A tiny turquoise bead and hypo allergenic niobium wire completes the earrings. 2 & 1/8" long. Medium weight. Ethnic, tribal. autumnal.

Here's a good FYI...It is thought that earrings were originally worn as charms to distract the eyes of a person who might be trying to hypnotize you! Also, they were worn to keep bad spirits from entering thru the ears! Who knew that earrings were so good and so good for you!
