On offer is an authentic pair of old NAVAJO hand wrought. 925 sterling silver and natural southwestern sky blue turquoise hoop pierced dangle earrings.
Are not hallmarked for maker which was more common in the earlier Native American work. Believe they were created circa 1960's or perhaps earlier. These stunning earrings were skillfully crafted in the NAVAJO way with attention to detail, and are in very good vintage condition (see photos for an accurate detailed depiction).The southwestern sky blue turquoise stones and hanging beads are in very good condition with no chips or cracks; the cabochon stones are securely set in smooth silver bezels. Overall, each hoop dangle earring measures approx. 2" long including ear wires x 1 1/8" at widest.
The pair weighs a total of 10.9 grams. These traditional Old NAVAJO sterling silver and southwestern turquoise dangle earrings would make an outstanding addition to any Twentieth Century Native American Jewelry, American Turquoise or Cultural Arts and Crafts collection. We have been involved in the design and creation of contemporary jewelry at the undergraduate and postgraduate level since 1967. In 1975 we opened a gallery of hand wrought fine art contemporary jewels and have since handled thousands of unique, one of a kind and limited edition pieces crafted predominantly by American artisans with a special emphasis on Native American Art.
Will be determined upon request. We believe our photos and description to be an accurate testament. Thus, ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Thanks for looking and good luck.
