Vintage Old Pawn Zuni Turquoise Sterling Silver Rain Cloud Earrings. The cloud symbol carried very high importance. This was because it carries the element of water and it is one of the most vital amongst all the elements as it carries the sustenance of life. The basic things which the Rain Symbol signifies are renewal, fertility and change.
I have had these earrings for over 20 years. They are not marked sterling, however they ice test sterling. They originally had a VERY short ear post and I had them removed and made them wires for comfort, that may be where the sterling stamp went.
They measure 1 7/8 long and 1 1/2 wide. The color is not a screaming turquoise blue but more on the pale green side, understated elegance. Funny thing about these earrings is that they are NOT IDENTICAL.
One has a bit more braided wire on it than the other and to tell you the truth, I had forgotten that, until I cleaned them. Once they are on, no one would probably ever notice and Ill bet you didnt notice when you saw the first photo. It will be a secret between you and the RAIN CLOUDS. All the stones are secure. One slight chip out of one stone see photo # 4, 7th from the bottom on the left, and slight discoloration, matrix, on another, see photo # 3, third from the bottom on the right.Please see photos as they are part of the description.
