Zuni Three-Dot Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Sterling Silver Pierced Earrings
Item #42311
We regret that this item is not available at this time.
Simple, yet elegant, these Zuni Three-Dot Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Sterling Silver Pierced Earrings reflect dual disciplines—lapidary work and silversmithing. Beautifully handmade by Zuni silversmith Florence Booqua, these earrings are set with cabochons of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise in sterling settings. Handcrafted in the U.S.A. Naturally occurring turquoise and individually crafted settings assure each earring is one-of-a-kind.
“Skystone” turquoise—like the cabochons jeweling these Zuni Three-Dot Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Sterling Silver Pierced Earrings—has been mined by Native Americans since 1000 CE. Highly sought for its sky blue color and little-to-no veining, the Sleeping Beauty turquoise in these earrings comes from a now-closed Arizona mine of the same name. The extensive holdings of the National Museum of the American Indian include many beautiful examples of Zuni turquoise and silver jewelry.
