Karo Batak Gemstone Earrings
Tanzanites, yellow diamonds, rose and yellow gold form a beautiful colour combination in these Batak earrings.
The Karo Batak were know for their exquisite work as gold- and silversmiths. As with many other ethnics, jewellery served as status symbol, insignia, to indicate belonging to a certain age group, as talisman or amulet, or simply as embellishment. Traditional jewellery ornaments are still in use today among the Karo Batak.
