Gorgeous set of vintage Hector Aguilar earrings wrought in .940 silver that is higher in purity than sterling in a playful design with stylized dangling cascabeles. I find the combination of circles, spheres and lengths of soldered together silver wire that make up this set quite ingenious in the way it gives a mod twist to an otherwise more “ethnic”, traditional motif.
Fabulous and in a difficult to find design…
