These pair of Zuni earrings features the fine lapidary work of an unknown mid-century artist. The earrings consist of four bands, each containing hand cut pieces of turquoise that have been set in sawtooth bezels. The four bands hang by circular links from a single stone post, with each of the four bars comprised of two more tear-drop turquoise in an ascending order to the bottom row, which contains five stones. From the last bar dangle five sterling silver wires with silver drops on the bottom of each wire. These classic Zuni petit point earrings were made for pierced ears and are light and easy to wear.  


Condition: The Zuni Pueblo Four Tier Ladder Style Petit Point Turquoise Earrings are in very good condition, the stones are intact.

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