The dark silver color of the patina that comes with age is a striking contrast to the light blue of the small turquoise stones in these mid-century earrings. A skilled Zuni Pueblo lapidary artist cut and shaped multiple stones and set them in graceful fashion adding a series of dangles at the bottom. These striking earrings are unsigned.


Condition: The Zuni Petit Point and Dangle Chandelier Style Earrings are in excellent condition. The stones are all intact and the silver is secure.

Provenance:  The earrings come from a gentleman Southwest Indian Jewelry collector in Colorado
