Vintage Navajo collar tips earrings with turquoise
Earrings made from vintage Navajo-made silver Collar tips, hand-stamped and hand-cut, with natural turquoise. These silver tips were used as collar points by the Navajo. They wore them by sewing them to their clothing at the collars. Made around the 1930's. They have been converted into earrings more recently for use as earrings. The original backings were not touched or changed so they won't loose their integrity. These have a fun shape and they are pieces of history you can wear.
The buttons measure 3" long and about 1 3/4" wide. Overall the earrings hang 3 3/4" long.
