Rare find!  These vintage Zuni petit-point natural Sleeping Beauty earrings have screw backs.  Each earring has twelve natural Sleeping Beauty turquoise stones set in two rows of six.  Natural Sleeping Beauty turquoise turns this lovely blue/green color with age.  Above, in the middle, and below each stone are sterling silver domes.  Before pierce ears became so normal, many women wore these screw back earrings which can be adjusted to the thickness of the earlobe by turquoise the tip of the screw.  We estimate that these earrings were made in the 1940s or 1950s.

Size: .675" Diameter - half hoops
