Hollow earrings such as these, in which a loop links a pyramidal form that resembles a faceted stone, are constructed of soldered sheet metal. They are elaborately decorated with applied bead and wire designs of floral, diamond, linear, spiral, and other geometrical forms. Such earrings are typically worn by Muslim women in the southern state of Kerala along the west coast of India.
