Amazing quality handmade Zuni, Native American, earrings, circa 1970s

These are a very large statement earring (almost 9cm long) with large mirror-inlaid hoop, articulated inner dangle, and three piece hoops dangle below. High quality turquoise top and natural spiderweb turquoise inlay with shell and spiny oyster.

Unusual bold design, gorgeous soft colours, high quality work, one of a kind - large statement earrings (but light to wear)

Stud back, very nice handiwork, beautiful colour-way, nice gauge of silver, quality handmade earrings. Getting harder to find these older inlays.

About this Piece

Sterling Silver

Sterling is an alloy of silver containing at least 92.5% pure silver (925 parts of 1000 thus the 925 stamp), the remainder is made up of a mix of metals (most commonly copper) used to make the metal workable. Pure silver is generally considered too soft to work with, although you can find silver jewellery at 950 or 980, even the occasional 99.9% fine silver, which can be work-hardened to increase durability.
