Guatemalan sterling réal coin earrings from the 1800s provide a primitive touch to with modern flair. Recast from the original Spanish réal coins brought to Central and South America during the Spanish conquest, these pieces eventually made their way into jewelry. The indigenous descendants of the Aztecs, Incas and Maya wore them for status and adornment.
The gold bronze bails provide beautiful contrast and a modern edge with mixed metals.
