Description

A mixed metals jumka like chandelier dangle pendant that may have served as one of a pair of earring, but more likely as a hair ornament which hung either from hair braids or from the head band. Made by Bedouins of the Arabian Peninsula. A similar example of a Saada hair ornament can be seen in Marjorie Ransom's book Silver Treasures from the Land of Sheba. If you intend to wear it as an earring(single), the wire is not for the average ear hole,it is thicker gauge than Western standard ear wires.

Length top of dome to bottom of dangles is 7 cm (2 3/4"). With the hook it is 12 cm 4-3/4"/ The dome's diameter is 1.7 cm (around 3/4"). The wire is thick gauge and the weight is 19 grams.
