These vintage Zuni earrings were made during a time when the fashion aesthetic called for daintiness. A skilled lapidary artist meticulously cut and shaped multiple tiny pieces of turquoise and arranged them to resemble a flower with an added row of turquoise and silver dangles. The work on these 1940s earrings was precise and the final effect is just beautiful. Age has given the stones an array of assorted hues of blue and green. The French hooks connect to the back of the earrings, making them very secure.   


Condition: The Vintage Zuni Needlepoint Flower Style Earrings with Dangles are in very good condition, the stones are intact.

Provenance: From a gentleman Southwest Indian Jewelry collector living in Colorado
