Native American Indian Natural Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Cabochon Pierced Earrings
$85.00 These beautiful earrings are entirely handmade of Sterling Silver, hand stamped with small cabochons of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. The glory of natural turquoise is unequaled. They are 1-3/4" long, and 7/8" wide. They weigh 7.0 grams, and they are for pierced ears. 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. The wonderful clear blue hue of Sleeping Beauty turquoise never goes unnoticed.
Mined in Globe, Arizona, matrix free natural Sleeping Beauty turquoise has enchanted the world with its quality and matrix free robins egg blue color. Since the closure of the Sleeping Beauty mine, top quality specimens have become difficult to find.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 Native American history.
