Entirely handmade by a Navajo silversmith with exceptional skill in lapidary work, these Navajo Kingman Turquoise Nuggets Pierced Earrings feature oval dangles individually strung with hand-shaped nuggets of classic Kingman Turquoise. Unearthed from ancient Kingman turquoise mines in northwest Arizona, the gorgeous blue hues and light brown to black matrices of these Kingman turquoise nuggets illustrate their legendary beauty. Handcrafted in the U.S.A. Naturally occurring turquoise variations assure each pair of earrings is unique.
The Kingman mine that produced the turquoise for these Navajo Kingman Turquoise Nuggets Pierced Earrings was first worked by ancient Native American civilizations. Rediscovered in the 1880s, Navajo hammers and polishing tools were found there along with Native American hammers from 600 CE. Among the hundreds of Navajo jewelry pieces curated by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian are many bracelets and rings adorned with Kingman Turquoise gems.
