Native America jewelry was one of the few types of jewelry that was influenced by the their own culture and style rather than those coming from Europe.
This simple pair of earrings has classic simplicity combined with custom-made artistry. The turquoise has fine matrix veins running throughout. The turquoise nuggets suspend from sterling findings and are screw back style, which probably dates them to the 1930’s.
The earrings are 1” long. One nugget is 5/8” by 3/8” weighing 2.3 grams and the other is 3/8” by 3/8”, weighing 2.2 grams. They are in excellent condition with a warm patina and guaranteed to be vintage.
