These mid century Zuni Pueblo earrings are an excellent example of the beauty of the simple elegance created by Zuni artisans. They consist of two hoops, each adorned with small pieces of turquoise. From the larger hoop, four silver rods hang.

Each of the turquoise cabs was sculpted by the lapidary artisan so they would reflect light as they swayed.  They are unsigned.


Condition: The Zuni Earrings with Two Hoops and Small Cabs of Turquoise are in very good condition. The stones are secure.

Provenance: From a gentleman Southwest Indian Jewelry collector in Colorado
