Here we have a pair of large sized tribal silver earrings from Afghanistan. The eawire at the wearing point is 1.6mm. These hoops have to be twisted in order to open them and slip into the ear. But they should not be bent too much, otherwise they will loose its shape with time. This particular pair has a very classy timeless look and goes truly well with any other ethnic tribal jewelry! Please check weight carefully, as they have some weight. Measurements are: Diameter: 1.5" (3.9cm) Weigth of pair: 14gr.
