Pashtun, Small Dangly Earrings.

Another pair of wearable dangly Pashtun Tribal Silver earrings from the border regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The Pashtuns love their bright colours often using flashy faceted glass in wild colour combinations, all for excitement and of course protection from the dreaded Evil Eye.

From a 1mm thick (not too thick) hook, an eight petalled silver flower with a faceted red glass centre has two silver wire twist and bead dangles on either side.
Beneath them, hanging independently is a sculpted silver dome suspending a fringe of silver beaded twisted wire dangles.

The silver has a relaxed grey patina, which we leave unpolished for you to judge the patina/age.
However a careful, light polish with a dry silver polishing cloth will re awaken the highlights and make the recesses look darker.

These are a very wearable, dangly, even jiggly pair of authentic Tribal earrings, old enough to be interesting, with enough tiny faults to have character and actually quite hard to find.

That is, to find good ones that are just right, usually they are too big, too heavy, the ear wires are too thick or they’re too knocked around !
So we hope you can see the value in these “just right” Tribal Bellydancing Earrings.

We may still have a few similar pieces, to see them try searching for "dangly earrings" on this site.
