XL Tribal Earrings HEAVY Large Gauge Hoops Headdress Jewelry 7.5" Long 9G (#8212)
Amazing, long, heavy, large gauge vintage tribal jewelry from the Gurjar/Gajar people of Afghanistan, Jalalabad region. These look like earrings but are actually hair adornment that hangs from braids or plaits. You could use them in a similar manner to create amazing headdress. However, if you have stretched lobes, then you're lucky enough to also wear these as earrings! a VERY LARGE gauge - between 9 and 8 gauge; the actual width on these is 3.14 mm. These are approximately 7.5 inches long. The paddle shape dangles make a quiet sound with movement. Each piece weighs just over 3.5ounces/98 grams. The hoops are about 2.5" wide. Stunning jewelry! The metal is neither distinctly silver nor golden in appearance but lays somewhere in between.
