A basket-shaped earring with pendants, with a body of seven vertical elements soldered together, each element ending in rounded, petal-like tips. On the front of the earring at the top is an applique design formed of three horizontal wires, with two rows of miniature rosettes between them. There are nine rosettes in each row, made of flat discs decorated with incisions around the edge and with small pellets soldered in the center. The ends of five double chains with scales strung on them are threaded through the perforations on the bar. Pawn-type, idol-shaped pendants are attached to the lower ends of the chains.
