These sterling silver turquoise cluster earrings were created by the Navajo silversmith, Eunice Wilson. Eunice has mastered the art of cluster. She hand picks the rough natural turquoise and shapes the stones into the perfect cluster shapes. The traditional silver work surrounding the stones really brings out the rich color of the turquoise. The turquoise stones show bits of quartz and pyrite matrix.
The earrings feature natural Sleeping Beauty turquoise stones set in serrated bezels against an oxidized sterling silver background. The earrings measure 2 inches long and 1 inch wide at the widest point. Each earring weighs 7.5 grams.
Brand new in perfect condition. They are stamped sterling and have a EJW hallmark, for Eunice Wilson. Authenticity Card and gift box included.
Both the Navajo and Zuni people love to make and wear cluster work. It is the jewelry of choice here in New Mexico. These earrings are one of those great Navajo pieces that will age perfectly, becoming one of your favorite treasures.
