Authentic Native American Indian Earrings
All the earrings that Palms Trading Company carries do have a few things in common. Every pair of earrings is authentic—handmade by Navajo, Hopi, Santo Domingo or Zuni Indian artists. All earrings are sterling silver, some with other precious metal overlays and/or set with gemstones or slabs.
Variety of Sterling, Brushed and Oxidized Silver Jewelry Finishes
Although each pair of earrings is made of sterling silver, the collection at Palms Trading Company showcases the variety of silver finishes that make every pair of Native American Indian earrings unique.
Navajo Indian artists are often known for brushed silver and silver oxidized jewelry. The brushed silver finish gives the metal a matte finish, which lends a vintage look to brushed silver pieces. Oxidized silver results in jewelry with a black finish, which often creates a dark backdrop for brushed or polished silver overlays.
Hopi Indian jewelry is most well-known for silver overlays, earrings being no exception.
