The Turquoise Earring has been a staple of Southwest American style for thousands of years and Turquoise Earrings have been popular world wide since the times of the Pharoahs in Ancient Egypt. Turquoise earrings have been made in many different styles since the invention of the Turquoise earring by the ancients. In ancient times most of the Turquoise Earrings that were made were tab style (slabs of stone without silver or gold around them). As jewelry became more common among the royalty, Turquoise Earring design changed and stones began to be wrapped in silver or gold. Both styles of Turquoise Earrings have carried over to modern day Turquoise Jewelry. Today Turquoise Earrings are made in many styles such as inlay jewelry, contemporary, Navajo Style, bead jewelry and cluster style are a few different styles.

We have been trading in Navajo and Zuni Native American Indian Jewelry and Turquoise Earrings since 1972.
Zuni Earrings are unique as they do a lot of fine stone work. The Zuni Indians do very fine earrings that consist of tiny Turquoise sliver shaped stones called Needlepoint and tiny round stones called Petti-point. They cluster many stones together to make unique designs that make beautiful Turquoise Earrings. These type of earrings are beautiful and the older they get the more beautiful they become. Many people collect Vintage Zuni Turquoise Earrings as they really are very special. Zuni Turquoise Earrings are also made by with the inlay process. They inlay Turquoise as well as other stones along with Turquoise to create beautiful pictorial design that are very desirable and attractive. Zuni Turquoise Inlay Earrings are precious and if you enjoy Southwestern Native American Turquoise Jewelry, a pair of Zuni Inlay Turquoise Earring would be a great choice.
Navajo Native American Indian Turquoise Earring design is much different then Zuni. The Navajo start with a stone/cabochon, put a bezel around the stone and usually additional silver filagree designs around that. Navajo Indians are known for their stamp and filigree work on silver with the use of a Turquoise Stone for the center focal point of the piece of Jewelry. Like Zuni Indian Turquoise Earrings, Navajo Turquoise Earrings are collectible when you buy them and as they age they become more and more desirable by collectors of Native American Indian Turquoise Jewelry. They are a wonderful item to hand down through generations of your family as Turquoise Earrings never go out of style.
