Persian Yomud earrings, each consisting of a long stem ending in three spirals of wire. And to these, platelets have been attached - one in the shape of a 4-petalled flower or cross and two others decorated with 'granulation'. Two bright blue turquoise stones, like those from Nishapur in Persia have been inserted into the bottom spirals. Dimensions: 13x4.8cm. Nineteenth century. Found in Afghanistan.
But are these really Yomud earrings?.... I will show you another photo.
