Asante Bead Earrings

Regular Price: $49.95

Striking and bold, these earrings are sure to gain compliments to anyone wearing them! Featuring beads that were both abstract and representative in form, beaded gold jewelry was worn during festivities by members of the Asante Royal families of Ghana. Often identified with the Asante peoples, these geometric forms could also be used as weights to measure gold dust during trades.

These beautiful earrings feature pewter beads with an antique gold finish and ceramic black and white beads. Based on jewelry found in the collections of the Penn Museum. 
Earrings hang 1.75" long with post backs.
