Native American Indian Sterling Silver Zuni Turquoise Needle Point Dangle Drop Pierced Earrings
The quality of these earrings is outstanding! These beautiful earrings are entirely handmade of Sterling Silver and small slivers of Beautiful Turquoise. They are 2-1/2" long, and almost 1/2" wide.. They weigh 7.8 grams total, and they are for pierced ears. All of the turquoise needle point stones are hand set in saw tooth bezels. Techniques in the 1940's, by today's standards, were rather primitive. Tools were crude, but workmanship was high quality for the time. These earrings are a perfect example of that era. There is no maker's mark. Artist marks were not commonly used in the early days of jewelry-making. Not marked but acid tested as sterling.
These earrings have the classic vintage look. The dangles are long and straight which is the early style of silver dangles. They are treasures from the past, made to last and last. As they increase in age, they will increase in value. They are not only an investment, but a lasting piece of Zuni history.
