Vintage Native American Sterling + Inlaid Turquoise Teardrop Earrings
A fantastic pair of Vintage Native American earrings from the 1950s! Crafted in sterling silver, these handmade earrings have a front-facing double link design. Gorgeous natural turquoise stones are inlaid into the surface of the teardrop shaped earrings, with each stone individually bezel set. The stones display a beautiful range of bright sky blue and sea green colors, providing a lively and colorful appearance to the design. Both links swing from a round surmount at the top, which features additional inlaid turquoise stones that form a lovely floral design. The earrings hang from simple wires, allowing them to swing with lovely movement and frame the face beautifully. Perfect for any Native American jewelry collector or turquoise lover, they would make a special pair of earrings for everyday wear!
Measurements: The earrings hang approximately 2 3/8" long (including the wires at the top), measure about 7/8" wide, and are 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting. All of the turquoise stones are intact and securely set. The earring wires are secure and in good working order. There is a natural darkened patina to some of the surface of the silver, which is normal given the age of the piece and adds to the beauty and character of the design.
