Tekke Turkoman, Gilt Silver and Carnelian Earhooks

A dramatic, but very quite wearable pair of wide, old “fire gilt” silver ear hooks, with piercing and large flat oval carnelians, one with striped pattern, (Stone L 21 mm x W 16 mm. quite age worn with many fine scratches, matting their surface.)
The fixed hook is not very thick, about 1 mm, (about 16 gauge.)
High placement of the stone reduces weight/pull.
Not very worn, but with some age and grime, the hooks appear to have been replaced, the patina is relatively light and heat has left a colour on the silver.
Just noticed (in blow up) that gilt is blistering in a few tiny places, part of their character.

Age: Mid/late 20th century.

Size: L 106 mm x W 48 mm

Weight: 45 grams
