A great pair of vintage Native American Navajo sterling and turquoise drop earrings.
The applique earrings are domed teardrops set with turquoise cabochons.
The teardrops have a recessed teardrop with a flat raised circle and a bezel set turquoise cab within it.
The recessed background has an oxidized patina that has a brown tinge and compliments the turquoise nicely.
The turquoise are untreated, the oval stones were hand cut and polished, one stone is darker in color which I find very appealing.
The earrings hang from a pierced French wire, they can easily be converted to screw back findings if requested.
Total length from the top of the ear wire is 1&5/8" by .5", the teardrop alone is 1&5/16" long, the turquoise cabs are 6mm by 4mm.
Unmarked, the silver tested sterling with acid, total weight is 9.4 grams.
Excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear.
A delightful pair of Native American drop earrings that are perfect for any occasion.
