About The Open Diamond-Shaped Turquoise Dangle Earrings

Excellent pair of Zuni crafted sterling dangles, made by a Dishta family member using Frank's style with a major difference.  Each one of the 3 mm natural blue round channel set turquoise stones is slightly domed !  VERY labor intensive, there are 28 stones in each beautiful earring!

The tops are postbacked and consist of 4 round stones grouped to form a solid diamond shape, while the pendant suspended by a hand-made soldered link, is an open diamond shape created by a single row frame of 24 round turquoise channel set stones.

These very unique earrings are subtle but definitely attention getters!  We put large sterling clutches on the post for your added comfort and security.
