    I agree, Mexican and serpentine. Based on pre-Columbian designs.

    As far as I know Rapa Nui/Easter Island jewellery is either .900 silver with delicate designs taken from rongo rongo script, or the usual Pacific shell necklaces etc.
    I have silver rongo rongo earrings, but the box they are in is blocked by other stuff because we have had some work done in the house. So no photos.
    But to give an impression, this is the design on my earrings:

    More rongo rongo script:

    Shame about rongorongo being a lost script. Perhaps some day we can understand it again.

    The design screams South America. Compare yours with mine: BA25501E-C4DE-48D4-B68F-FD82EEAB43FB.jpeg Mine was recently purchased. My (s)mother went down to Ecuador a month ago and had a vendor make this and sell it to her while she watched his craft.

    An inexpensive souvenir from México. Bought on the beach in Cancún or some such.

    Another way to get the mods attention on offending posts (and the way I prefer) is the click on Report just below the post that is a problem. That brings up a boc in which you type the reason for the report - why the post is a problem, in this case. I usually enter the word Spam or Porn or advertising (depending on what has been posted. That triggers an alert to both Davey and Book that takes them directly to the post to be dealt with. No question about why you are summoning them.
