Is this a trinket from a modern store like Zara?

Old rabari tribe silver jewelry earring

Or is it possible that this is a tribal traditional old design used over several generations by a tribe in Western India?

Any guesses?

These are traditional earrings that have been worn for ages by the Rabari tribe in Kutch, Gujarat.

Who would’ve thought?!
