Vintage Gaspeite and Sterling Silver Earrings – Native American Indian Navajo VJB Earrings
FREE first class shipping in the USA, compliments of Wild Goose Chase!
These are very impressive Navajo sterling silver Gaspeite Native American drop dangle earrings. They feature an oxidized front and shiny back. This really sets off they gaspeite stones. They are for pierced ears.
They are big on style, but light weight and especially easy and flattering to wear, because they don't pull down your earlobe.
MAKERS MARK: VJB and STERLING.
CONDITION: Excellent pre-owned condition.
SIZE: Earrings are 2 1/2" long.
HISTORY: Gaspiete is mined in the Gaspe Peninsula in Canada and Australia, and the sources are nearly depleted. Qualifying it as a rare stone now.
It has been mined in Australia for a very long time, and was found in the Gaspe Peninsula in 1977. My best GUESS is that this is Canadian Gaspiete. I have no proof of that.... it is just a feeling.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: green and silver, Size: 2-1/2" long
