Nepalese Silver Hoop Earrings

Are you looking for something very unique and authentic?

 

These earrings are the real deal. These are not toned down for a Western audience. These are traditional, totally authentic and worn by the Nepalese women themselves in tribal communities in the foothills of the Himalayas.

 

When I travelled in Nepal back in the 1980s I bought a pair from a village silversmith and I still wear these today. 

 

They are lightweight and comfortable to wear, each earring has a simple hinged clasp to keep it secure but also easy to remove.

 

These earrings are handcrafted in Nepal by skilled silversmiths. We guarantee that the silversmiths are paid a fair wage for their work.

Our supplier at Siesta Crafts wrote to me personally in answer to my question about Nepalese silver. Here is his reply:

 

'The Nepalese silver hoops are made from Nepalese silver which sometimes has a higher silver content than most commercial silver (normal earring silver is marked 925 - i.e 92.5% silver) So, being Nepal, sometimes we get silver with a 925 stamp - and sometimes without it. Our supplier has been working with us for many many years so we know and trust that the silver is at least 92.5% silver. A higher silver content makes the silver more soft and pliable.'

 

 100% Nepalese silver (please see additional tab for details)


Made in Nepal

 

Siesta Crafts was started in 1983 by Chris and Les Harper with a market stall selling handicrafts that were brought back from their travels from Mexico and Guatemala (hence the name!).


They now import directly from suppliers in countries all over the world on a Fair Trade basis and they are proud to be a member of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers.


They specialise in unusual and interesting gifts. In this day and age of anodyne, cloned town high streets, it is good to see they have a vibrant, colourful presence with a wide range of unique and colourful handcrafted and fair trade items.


Their intention is that by trading with their producers they are helping them to achieve economic self-sufficiency, whilst simultaneously bringing to their customers the skills and crafts of other cultures.
