Algerian, Enamelled Silver Earrings.

 Sorry, this colourful pair of earrings are no longer available.

A brightly coloured pair of "cloisonned" Algerian Silver Earrings, featuring a round disc shape with applied silver filigree seperating cells of lime green, mustard and  deep ultramarine blue enamels.

I believe these are from the "Greater Kabyle" region of Northern Algeria., and as such are relatively rare to make it through to us here.

They're pretty new and in perfect condition with a bold design defined with wire "cloisonnes" that seperate the coloured enamels, all surrounding a central shiny silver  knob. 

Then there's the fact these are actually genuine baked glass enamels to be savoured!

They hang from a standard fixed earhook so they are quite close to the ear and there isn't a lot of swaying movement, some but not a lot.

They are a high grade silver, close to Sterling, but unstamped. If you're allergic and unfortunate enough to find they affect your lobes, just clean the wire with Pure Alcohol or Metho to remove any greasy finger prints then coat it with clear nail polish. If you don't degrease first it you won't get 100% coverage.

A  careful polish with a dry Silver Polishing Cloth, when you think they need it, will reveal the detail of its silver outlines within the rich colour fields.

Just what you'd want in an Algerian earring, but we may have others and even some older rings, see also just search Algerian to see rings, pendants and earrings too.

As with all our stock, supplies are very limited, so if it's your size and you can afford it don't hesitate too long! Snap it up!
