Title Genuine Bone Clip Earrings Ivory Egyptian African Chandeliers eGYPT
Item Number bone1
I bought these in Egypt near the Sudan in the early 90's - I don't believe they are ivory so I am calling them bone. I've never been really great at telling the difference. I do know they don't have that amber looking criss cross pattern to them. Their definietly bone - you can see the texture. They are clips and the backs are tight. The metal is a mysterly metal to me - their very light weight but strong with and antiqued silver finish over the very detailed Arabic design. The disc measures 1 and 1/2 inches across. The entire earring measures just a tad under 3 inches long. They make a very dramatic statement. I believe I might have a few pairs with other designs in this same bone but I haven't unpacked them yet so check back amybe next week. If I run across them I will post them too. Condition is mint on this set as they have been packed away all these years.
