Antique Yemen filigree silver Earrings is a traditional jewish yemeni technique, done showing the craftsmen expertise. This design shows a filigree flower, and lovely dangling silver bells to avoid bad spirits. All Yemeni jewellery is used as a talisman to protect the wearer.

It might have been attached to a fabric backing for the headpiece of the bride or it may have hung from the bottom strand of multiple rows of silver and amber beads, as we see in wedding photos and museum displays of Yemeni bridal dowries
