Signed Delberta Boone, a very well-known jewelry maker of the Zuni nation, this stunning pair of drop dangle earrings are a shining example of the intricate artistry of Zuni jewelry crafters. Each earring is adorned with 21 genuine coral cabochons, each one set in a sawtooth bezel.

The foundation of the pair is heavy gauge solid sterling silver, polished and buffed to highlight the stones and the rope motif. The reverse of one earring is inscribed with ‘Zuni’ and the other with ‘D/Boone’, both in cursive. This style of jewelry is known as needlepoint, and is a highly valuable, iconically Zuni design

Delicate yet bold, these statement earrings boast their Native American history, craftsmanship and beauty. This pair is rare in that coral has not been harvested since the 1980s, dating these earrings to the 1970s. Style with your floral summer dress, pair with a sleek jumpsuit, or wear with your minimalist best for a striking addition to your outfit.
