These pre-owned Native American handmade silver bead earrings were recently purchased from a local estate sale auction. Each earring is made up of three silver bench beads and a big hollow barrel bead, dangling from a silver overlay disk.
The earrings measure 2-3/4" long. The disks at the top of the earrings are 3/4" in diameter and the big hollow barrel beads are 7/8" long by 5/8" in diameter. Each earring weighs 11.7 grams..
Excellent condition, needing only a gentle polish. The earrings are unmarked and unsigned, but we have tested the silver and guarantee it is coin silver or better. We also believe the earrings to be Native American, probably Navajo, made. There is no artisan signature that we can see.
From a private collection of Native American jewelry recently purchased at a local auction house. The exact age of the earrings is unknown.
