You can easily see that this Native American silver jewelry was handcrafted most likely by a Hopi silversmith. Large (for earrings at 3/4 Inches in Diameter) round BEAR PAW pierced post earrings are not thin or 'tinny' - 1/8 Inch Thick. If you look very closely you can see tell that they are hand crafted as they are not exactly identical.
Hopi Overlay Silver Earrings are in VERY GOOD CONDITION! Push-On butterfly type nuts are marked "925" for Sterling however; earrings are unmarked as to precious metal content (I GUARANTEE them to be SOLID Silver - probably sterling)... they retain dark black oxidized accents to overlay. The fronts have been gently cleaned without removing all of the patina - reverse is untouched.
Would make a FABULOUS Gift or Addition to your Southwestern or Hand Crafted Native American silver jewelry collection - Fresh from a buying trip thru Virginia. Super COOL for a man or woman!
