Antique Turkmen Coral Earrings


Here we have a real special and beautiful pair of
exquisite antique turkmen silver and old coral
earrings from the first half of the 20th century.
They are of high silver content and made of scrolls
of twisted wire.
This type of earrings are found in the Turkmen
populations in Central Asia, in the valley of Fergana
in Uzbekistan and on the other side of the border,
in Afghanistan.
A gorgeous piece in perfect condition.
This pair is for sure a collector's piece. You can find
a similar pair on p.85 in Anne van Cutsem's Book
"A world of Earrings". But you can aswell wear
them and they will look gorgeous.
The wire has a thickness of 1mm, which is very wearable
for western standard earholes.

Total length: 67mm (2.7")
Weight of pair: 17gr.
