Frank Dishta

About The 1940's Hoop Earrings with Blue Gem Turquoise

For the span of his career, Frank Dishta's signature inlay found its way into the best of homes with collectors and those of us who just love to wear beautiful turquoise and silver jewelry.  

This love for the Zuni master's work has not diminished with time.  Appreciation of Mr. Dishta's fine quality has only increased with the growing scarcity of the pieces available.

We are fortunate to have several very nice items from the estate of a life long Dishta devote.  When you put these earrings on, they look wonderful and they feel good. Enjoy!
