A wonderful pair of Native American Zuni sun face earrings in sterling and inlaid stones.
Zuni multi-color inlay is a popular expression of Zuni art, the stones used are turquoise, coral, onyx and mother-of-pearl.
The choice of stones have meaning in the Zuni culture as each color represents one of the cardinal directions.
The face is framed with black onyx which contrasts beautifully with the face, the onyx inlay has sterling between each stone, the scalloped edge is vibrant mother of pearl that has great flashes of green and pink.
The onyx stones are separated with silver which accentuates the shapes and colors.
The earrings are very well made and in excellent condition, no damage or visible wear. The have large sterling nuts to keep the earrings secure when worn.
They measure 1" in diameter, total weight is 8.7 grams.
Unmarked, the silver tested sterling with acid.
