We believe these earring are of Native American Origin. they date from the 1930's/40's. The Ankh's are sand cast and rather tick and heavy. Each Ankh is adorned with a lovely natural hand cut and polished turquoise cabochon. The turquoise is in a saw tooth bezel setting and completely original. At the top of each ankh is a soldiered eye loop which at present are affixed with silver plate screw backs. However, I have included sterling silver shepherds hooks if you desired to convert them to pierced. The condition is lovely with a natural patina and normal wear.
Ankh only 1 1/2" x 3/4"
Weight: 19 grams
"Ankh is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic ideograph with the meaning "life". The Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest."
