Description

Slim turquoise bars inlaid in sterling silver swing from a turquoise post in these drop earrings by Femina Malani, a jewelry artisan from the Zuni Pueblo in western New Mexico. For the Zuni and for many Southwestern Indigenous Americans, blue-green turquoise is a stone of protection.

This jewelry item comes packaged in a white box (pictured).
