Vintage Navajo Johnny Johnson Sterling Silver and Turquoise Cutout Kokopelli Dangle Pierced Earrings - Stamped #d373

Regular price $79.00
These beautiful earrings were created by talented Navajo silversmith, Johnny Johnson, circa the 1950s-1960s. The earrings are comprised of fine sterling silver and turquoise stones. They feature flat, tapered dangles with bezel set, blue turquoise stones at the tops. The bottoms of the dangles have wonderful cutout Kokopelli figures dancing under stamped and raised clouds and sunrays with a falling snowflake above the Kokopelli's head. The dangles hang down from sterling silver ear wires and come on their original, black store card. They are enchanting!

The earrings measure about 1 13/16 inches long, 1/2 inch wide and weigh 3.3 grams. They are signed "JJ" for Johnny Johnson on the back of one earring and and hallmarked "Sterling" on the back of the other earring.

These earrings are so beautiful and the ancient symbol they represent make them even more special! They would nicely complement your other Native American or Southwestern silver and can be easily dressed up or down. They would make a fine addition to your vintage silver jewelry collection. The earrings are in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear!
