Pair of gilded silver earrings decorated with "Two Dragons Playing with a Pearl" and red coral bead.

These s-shaped earrings are made of silver by the Yao. Patterns of fish are carved on one flat end while two silver baubles decorate the other end with spiral patterns on the top.

This earring would have been worn by a Yi man. It is made of a piece of amber between two smaller coral beads above a black tassel.

Generally, Yi men only wore a single earring on their left ears.

These silver earrings feature round spiral designs common among the Yao.
