Bawbee Coin Drop Earrings


This ancient Scottish halfpenny dates back to the 17th Century and is warmly recalled in the lyrics of a much loved nursery song:
“Ally bally, ally bally bee, sittin' on yer mammy’s knee,
greetin’ for a wee bawbee, tae buy some Coulter's candy”.

Little bawbee coins, cast from a 1696 original, drop from simple wires secured with elegant back clips.

Our designer says: “We love the way these drops capture the raised detailing of the coin in different lights.”


Solid sterling silver, with finishes available in 18ct yellow gold vermeil and 18ct rose gold vermeil.

Approx: 2.4cm total drop

Product code: BBE02
