These older Zuni earrings of channel set flush turquoise inlay in silver are ridiculously gorgeous.

It's something about the way the jeweler played with shape - setting turquoise in squares and rectangles while framing the turquoise in corresponding silver shapes. You'll notice two rectangular cut outs as well as 5 tiny rectangular turquoise drops that dance at the end of each earring. But enough with the boxy shapes . . . there's even silver wire that forms a triangle and circle to attach the post of the earring to the bottom portion. It's exceptional design details like these that elevate certain jewelry pieces into the art realm.

You'd be hard pressed to find another vintage Zuni pair just like these as the great old Zuni dangles are rare as can be. 

The Zuni earrings measure 2 1/2" long x 3/4" wide. They've been converted from screw backs to posts for pierced ears.
