MEASUREMENTS:

Post dangle earrings measure approximately 1-3/8" long and 1/4" at widest point.

DESCRIPTION:

Excellent craftsmanship is shown throughout this amazing pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Bowannie, out of genuine sterling silver and real mulitcolor inlay. The inlay consists of: Turquoise, Coral, Jet along with Yellow Mother of Pearl. The inlay is delicately set, while a silver base can be seen highlighting the center of the earrings for a beautiful finish.

Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.

Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of its appeal and beauty.
