Older Native American Zuni channel inlay necklace and earring set featuring turquoise and silver, no markings as to maker that we ccan find, only the Zuni did this type of channel inlay, and older pieces often were not signed. No metal markings either. We assume it is sterling, but are pricing it as fine silver tone metal just in case as we were not present when it was tested. The turquoise may have been stabilized as typical in most jewelry of this type to preserve the color. The earrings are pierced on wires, measuring 1 & 3/8" from bottom of earring to top of the wire. The necklace measures 17 & 7/8" around, with the the inlay part making up 3 & 1/2" of that total. It is in very good condition, we have not polished this at all. Came to us from the estate of a trading post owner.
