VERY BIG Old Baluchi Earrings Amazing Unique Tribal Jewelry 15 Gauge Hoops Ear Weights(#8119)
Amazingly large and dramatic old earrings from Baluchistan! These lovelies are not for the standard ear piercing - they are 15 Gauge (AWG)/1.45mm size hoop and weigh 3.1 ounces/86.8 grams each. ****NOT FOR THE STANDARD PIERCING**** What beauties though - the pattern is visible, the dangles are intact, and the sound they make with movement is evident. There are blue beads around the top and running through the dangles. Some of the beads are missing.
These are about 6.25" long when hanging, by 2" wide. There is one red setting on one hoop and a green on the other. I've hung these on small copper hoops for display only, the copper hoops are neither included nor a part of the earrings themselves. The metal is mostly a silver-tone while the hoops are brass tone. There is some oxidation due to age. Gorgeous!
Different monitors and phone apps show colors differently. I do my best to accurately document color using both photos and written descriptions. If you have any questions, please send me a message.
