Nakai sterling silver and Lone Mountain Turquoise stud and post dangle earrings.
The stud and post feature of these earrings makes them easy to wear. These chandelier earrings are supported on the ear by a stud base. That makes them hang better than those that hang from a wire. No saggy earlobes!
These are stunning NAKAI sterling silver Lone Mountain Turquoise earrings. The Lone Mountain Turquoise mine is in Nevada. Lone Mountain Turquoise is among the most expensive turquoise. Among all “classic” Southwestern turquoise, only Lander Blue Turquoise is more valuable.
SIGNATURES/MARKS: Nakai and Sterling are marked on the back.
CONDITION: Fine pre-owned condition. All original with a beautiful light patina. If you prefer you can polish these to a higher shine. I find the patina beautiful.
SIZE: These earrings are large 2” long by 3/4" wide at widest part. They weigh 7.5 grams which makes the easy to wear.
MARKS / SIGNATURES: STERLING & NAKAI are stamped on the inside.
The Nakai hallmark always indicates the very best in Navajo Indian
craftsmanship and using the highest quality stones and sterling silver finish work.
ATTRIBUTION: This Thunderbird theme bracelet has been attributed many many times to Gilo or Grace Nakai.
BUT confusion reigns here. There is a team, Gilo & Grace Nakai, that use this mark.
*** HOWEVER*** there is also Nakai Indian Jewelry of Santa Fe that has used this mark for many years too,
and they feature award winning designs from many Native American artisans.
Without confirmation from the artist, I do not see how anybody can be 100% sure on the silversmith.
I am puzzled why 2 different teams would use the same markings.
Your purchase will arrive in a new gift box.
***AS AN ADDED NOTE: These pictures were all taken with a zoom lens so they look larger than they actually are. Please check the actual measurements.
