The revived 'Gile Ole' silver earrings are part of our rich Indian traditional history and were originally in use in the middle of the 19th century. Renowned museums such as the Victoria and the Albert museum in London also has a pair of these.
These earrings depict parrots with stones studded within, surrounding a conical structure. Simple forms of these are still adorned by the women from Gokak, Belgaum etc. who are cultivators and cattle breeders.
The history behind the name is that 'gili' means parrot and was said to be a vehicle of the Hindu God 'Kama'. It is thus a symbol of passion and fertility. 'Ole' simply means a ear stud in Kannara. The conical shape of the earring at the centre is also said to be a symbolic representation of the female breast further stressing on the fertility concept. Moha has handcrafted this fine deisgn in 925 sterling silver by carefully trying to preserve its traditional aesthetics.
