Usually black and silver this color is rare. In a hexagon shape and a bit unusual. Very striking. They measure 3/4” across and are marked Siam Sterling. A beautiful and different gift for a friend who collects Niello or who just likes unusual vintage items. Screw backs.

In excellent vintage condition



Nielloware jewelry from Thailand (Siam) were popular gifts from American soldiers taking "R&R" in to their girlfriends/wives back home from the 1930s to the 1970s. Most of it was completely handmade jewelry as you can see from the jeweler’s mark on the back of these earrings.

The country of Siam changed its name to Thailand in 1939, changed it back to Siam in 1945, and then was finally renamed Thailand again in 1949, so these earrings most likely date from between 1945-1949.
