All parts of this mixed metal mini dagger post earrings are wonderfully detailed. From the point to the pommel, this dagger looks like the real thing. The handle of this sword is bronze and the rest of the sword is sterling silver. Ear wire and nut are also sterling silver. The pronounced quillon and the twisted grip are especially fierce! Perhaps the earliest of concealed weapons and often a warrior's last defense, daggers represent betrayal, loss, protection, valor, and sacrifice.
