Perfect blooms, these Petite Navajo Sterling Silver Concha Pierced Earrings are exquisitely hand-stamped by a Navajo silversmith.

As the earrings are hand-stamped, slight variations ensure each is truly unique.
Originally conchas—like these Petite Navajo Sterling Silver Concha Pierced Earrings—were linked together to form Navajo belts, one of the most compelling designs of the Navajo silversmith’s art. The use of conchas is believed to have been inspired by the conchas adorning the headstalls of Mexican bridles. Handmade conchas like these are time-consuming to make, with each design element being struck one at a time with a home-made die and a hand hammer. Our National Museum of the American Indian curates hundreds of Navajo jewelry pieces, including silver concha belts, buckles, buttons, brooches and earrings.
