This is a medium size, sandcast arracada Mexican earring. It is the traditional arracada or crescent shape, so common on the earlobes of Mexican women, with a small flowers and leaves. They are 92.5% silver or sterling silver. It has a slight patina from oxidation to make them appear old. Handmade near Mexico City. Each earring is slightly different from the photo--they are handmade so there is a little variation in how close the flowers are to the edges.
Arracada earrings naturally sit slightly angled in the earlobe. It's not the hole in your ear! They are supposed to be slightly angled and not exactly perpendicular to your head. For that reason, you may be able to see the back side of the earring when you are looking in the mirror.
