Handmade from vintage silver, these early 20th century earrings were part of the elaborate costumes of Miao women, an ethnic minority that lives in Southwest China. Miao people regard silver as the most precious of metals and begin amassing silver jewelry for their daughters during childhood. The weight of the ornaments a girl wears can range anywhere from several ounces to a few kilograms. The pair is mounted on custom iron stands.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
