Vintage Navajo Button Earrings By Emerson Bill
There are certain vintage pieces that every collector of Native American jewelry needs - a great Navajo turquoise cuff, a great Navajo silver cuff, a Zuni inlay pin, a turquoise ring, a Kewa heishi necklace, a natural coral necklace . . . you get the idea. Into that category also goes a nice pair of Navajo silver button earrings. They're so easy to wear, and they look fabulous with all the above pieces.
A pair like these vintage repousse buttons by Navajo jeweler Emerson Bill is a necessity. You'll wear them with anything and everything, and they're a fantastic price. Unlike many of the silver bead/button earrings you find today, these are handmade. One of the earrings is slightly imperfect, which is actually PERFECT because it shows off its vintage, handmade nature.
Each oh, so pretty earring measures 1 1/8" in diameter and is hallmarked on the reverse.
