Jewelry from Nepal: Individual Pieces

This pair of earrings is a little different from the preceding in that the decoration is not repousse but had been fashioned separately and soldered onto the thin sheet of gold. This helps reinforce the earrings. In Nepalese tradition the fish are a symbol of fertility.

These measure 1-7/8 by 2-1/8 inches.
