The modern drop earrings have 18ct yellow gold shepherd’s hooks and pendants which are shield-shaped. The pendants have a Makume Gane front made up of layered 18ct gold and shakudo (copper alloyed with gold circa 10%, which oxidises naturally to a rich black finish). The backs are sterling silver. The pendants are marked “IVAN; 750”. The earrings were hand-made by Ivan Mrkusic of Johannesburg.
