Antique Chinese Inspired Coin Earring

The rise and fall of the great dynasties forms a thread that runs through Chinese history. China can trace her culture back to a blend of small original tribes which have expanded till they became the great country we have today. Chinese society has progressed through five major stages: primitive society, slave society, feudal society, semi-feudal and semi-colonial society, and the founding of the People's Republic of China on October 1st, 1949, China has become a socialist society. China’s ability to evolve and conform to the demands of every new era is what makes it a powerful superpower and something to be revered and respected. With so much relevant history and influence today no matter where we are in the world, China is a part of us as a people of the globe. With this ever progressing, ever present culture of united people I bring you my 3rd collection of Chinese inspired jewelry.

These Chinese inspired sterling silver coin earrings are the third piece in my 3rd Collection of ancient Chinese inspired jewelry.

Cast from a coin that was used during the reign of the Qianlong Emperor from 1736 to 1795...

The face of the coin has the Chinese symbols 乾(left)隆(ring), which mean Qianlong Emperor and the chinese symbols on the top and bottom are "T'ung Pao, which means money.

The back reads: "BOO CIOWAN" (Board of Revenue mint). The manchurian mint name translates to Pao-Ch'uan, or "The Fountain head of the Currency".

The earring measures 2 1/2 inches long and the coin is 3/4 of an inch in diameter...

Upon ordering please let me know if you'd like antique, satin, or polished finish.
