An early 20th century silver necklace and earrings. Made with Pahlavi coins featuring the Persian symbol of the lion with sword in front of the rising sun. The stylized bows are set with red and pink ruby colored glass. There are two tiers of coins and set rubies. The larger bow is elaborately encrusted with ruby glass and dangles. The smaller bow is topped with Avila, the twin headed eagle, and it's dangling coin appears Turkish as it features a Tughra, or seal of Solomon. The earrings feature crescent moons with stars and bezel set ruby dangles and have a 2.25 inch drop. I believe the earrings were added later. The necklace is 24 inches long with the bow pendant and dangles dropping nearly 5 inches.
