Kingman Turquoise Flat-Bead Silver Concha Necklace Pierced Earrings Set
Item #47229
We regret that this item is not available at this time.
An exquisite homage to the art of pueblo hand-stamped conchas, this Kingman Turquoise Flat-Bead silver Concha Necklace and Pierced Earrings Set is the beautiful design of artisan Carol Smith. Finished with cones and an extender chain, the necklace of this Kingman Turquoise Flat-Bead Silver Concha Necklace and Pierced Earrings Set culminates in a concha pendant with a polished nugget of prized Kingman Turquoise, renowned for its intense blue color and complex brown-black matrices. Handcrafted in the U.S.A. Naturally occurring turquoise variations and individually made and stamped silver conchas assure each necklace and pair of earrings is unique.
Originally conchas—like those gracing this Kingman Turquoise Flat-Bead Silver Concha Necklace & Pierced Earrings Set—were linked together to form belts, one of the most compelling designs of the pueblo silversmith’s art. Time-consuming to make, each design element of a handmade concha is struck one at a time with a home-made die and a hand hammer. Our National Museum of the American Indian curates hundreds of silver jewelry pieces, including concha belts, buckles, buttons, brooches and earrings.
Set includes 20"l. Necklace and 0.75"dia. post-back Pierced Earrings.
