These interesting handmade sterling silver turquoise earrings were created by award winning Navajo artists, Everett & Mary Teller.
Each earring consists of two rigid sterling silver beaded wire hoops. The earrings measures 1-1/8 inch long not including the earwires and the largest hoops are 1 inch wide. The oval natural Kingman turquoise stones are 9/16 inch long by 7/16 inch wide and they are a beautiful greenish-blue color with subtle honey colored matrix. The stones are in perfect condition. Each earring weighs 5.7 grams.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift Box and Certificate of Authenticity included. Purchased directly from and hallmarked by the artists. You can't get a better guarantee of authenticity than that! The earrings are stamped sterling and have the Teller's hallmark, which is their initials EMT inside inside a fish symbolizing their Christian faith.
There is a similar hoop wire turquoise pendant made by the same artists available, as shown in the last photo. Now the turquoise on the pendant is a bit more blue and less green than these earrings, but only slightly. I think you they would look great together!
