Kazak, Gilt Silver and Red Coral Earhooks

Sorry, this lovely pair of earrings are no longer available.
Wonderfully rich, long Kazak Earhooks, made of "fire gilt" silver with applied/stamped silver details. A hook with an "ovoid bead", supporting a hemispere, in turn suspending twisted wire and genuine Old Red Coral drops. 

The gilt is set off by both the silver and the old orange/red corals.
The earwire is slightly thick, not for a beginner, but nowhere near very thick.
Quite long, but really well proportioned and balanced, they shouldn’t be heavy on.

Possibly from Kazakhstan or made by Kazak refugees now based in Afghanistan (many since the 1920's when they fled Stalin and the Bolsheviks.)

Age: Mid/Late 20 th Century
