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.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
