Afghan, Four Doves Earrings

Sorry, these lovely earrings are no longer available. We may however, still have a very similar pair.

Here are a lovely pair of scallopped round silver dangly earrings embossed with four "doves" dancing in a circle between flowering plants.

At the top shielding the wearable (normal thickness) hooks are a pair of small birds facing a flower (or four leaf clover?) These are flanked by two small dangling old red coral beads. And across the base of the main disc, five rings support fine "loop in loop" chains each with an old worn red coral bead, of that mellow orange shade we love.

It may be a coincidence, but our source found these on a trip to Masari Sharif in North Central Afghanistan, the Blue Mosque here is a pilgramage site that happens to be famous for its doves, all of which are white, it's said that any other coloured dove landing there will turn white within forty days.

They already have a relaxed patina in the recesses and will respond well to a light polish with a dry "silver polishing cloth" just to bring up their highlights.

Don't use liquid cleaners on them.

We were able to get a few variations on the dove and coral theme, so just do a search for "dove earrings" to find them.
