Silver Lion Earrings (round bell)
Pair of silver earrings in a stylized lion design hanging five silver bells on silver chains.
(Note: The bells are decorative, they don’t have clappers inside to ring as you walk, though the bells and chains together will make a light silvery tinkling sound!)
All pieces are handmade silver from Qiang ethnic minority village workshop.
Silver has very strong cultural value amongst the minority peoples – see our Stories on Silver and Miao, Tibetan and Qiang people.
Craftspeople use Fine 99.9% pure silver both for its softness and the cultural value of pure silver.
By contrast Sterling silver is defined as only 92.5% purity: our silversmiths do not apply a Sterling silver hallmark!
