Tajik,Glass and Silver Earhooks

Classic Tajik silver earhooks, with darkly patinated wire spirals and mulberries.
Knobs and balls surround a tear drop cavity (lotus?) which accommodates a deep olivey green mirrored glass.
This colour is better than in the photos with a hint of oil slick and grime combined.
The actual hook is 1. 5 mm, not for a beginner.
A very similar pair is in “World of Earrings” in gold, they say “granulated beads like these date back to Mesopotamia…” then go onto designate them Turkoman, denying Kazak, I think they’re Tajik, take your pick.
Either way, they have a solid drama to them, perfect for those with bigger holes.
There may be other colour choices in this style, seek TH100.
