Afghan Tribal Silver Opium Poppy Hoop Earrings

Traditional handmade Baluch and Kutchi Afghan tribal silver hoop earrings decorated at the base with a stylised opium poppy pod. Made from very high grade silver.

Please note that the wire is app. 2 mm (0.07 in) thick at the top and cannot be worn in a standard piercing - it would need to be stretched a very small amount. 

These tribal earrings date to the early 20th century (approximately 80 years old) and were personally collected by my father Bernard Heaphy, during the 1980's in Afghanistan.
