|Beautiful and delicate gold earrings with natural pearls from the Tehuantepec Istmus in Oaxaca Mexico. The particular design of this pair is called "Gusanos" (Carterpillars) and are around 60 to 75 years old. This kind of old work is not produced anymore and is not the tourist kind, they were made for the local women who used to wear them at important celebrations. This earrings are hook type for pierced ears. Measures: 1-1/2" long by 3/8" wide. Very good vintage condition.|
