Sterling silver and 14 Karat Gold.

This is a very gorgeous pair of earrings that would make a great gift! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Peggy Skeets, out of genuine sterling silver and 14 karat gold. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver or gold. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pair of earrings the second layer creates adorable bear deigns for a lovely look. In Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper". The earrings are stamped sterling, 14K, and hallmarked by the artist.
