This exquisite pair of silver and turquoise earrings consists of a round ear attachment with a turquoise gemstone surrounded by silver wire on the front side and a pierced-ear attachment on the back side.  Suspended from this anchor, is a pendulum that features three oval turquoise gemstones in a vertical arrangement, each surrounded by silver wire.  Silver drops were placed between the gemstones.  At the bottom of the pendulum is a silver expansion that, indeed, has a pendulum appearance.  One can only imagine that the earrings swing back and forth as the wearer is walking

Condition: original condition

Provenance: this Diné Pair of Silver and Turquoise Dangle Earrings is from a resident of Colorado
