    Tibetan Pair of Man’s Turquoise Earrings

    19th century

    length: 4cm, combined weight: 26g



    UK art market

    Each of this pair of ear pendants comprises a large, thick, solid ribbed gilded hoop – open at one end – with an attached bezel that comprises a large, lozenge section topped by a lotus-shaped flourish. The bezel is inset with flat-topped turquoise cabochons, and edged with applied granulation work.

    An almost identical earring is illustrated in Clarke (2004, p. 82).

    The pair here are in fine condition. There seems to be an old repair to one of the loops.
