Depending from the extended tails of the falcons are pendulous flexible appendages,
composed of open-work plaques of geometric pattern interlaced by five rows of blue and
gold cylindrical beads, which terminate with five heads of uraei.
These ear-rings are remarkable for their size, weight, fine workmanship and peculiar
design. They are made of gold (tarnished), and are inlaid (after cloisonné fashion) with
natural stones such as quartz and calcite; dark and light blue, red, white and green glass
(the blue and green translucent); and coloured faience.
NOTE: The ear-rings show evidence of wear and tear.
