Navajo earrings come in many different styles and are made utilizing many materials. Historically known to have been worn for personal adornment by indigenous peoples for ages, the beauty of earrings to Native peoples is apparent in both past and present times.
In the early times, Navajo found local materials or imported items by traders or other tribes and began to craft their own earrings. As silversmithing was introduced, many Navajo silversmiths began to make earrings. These earrings, usually made from turquoise, became a part of their traditional attire. As time progressed, many styles started forming.
The most famous of these styles is the “Clustered Stone” earring. Each stone is meticulously shaped, then set to form an exquisite floral pattern. Its beauty is unsurpassed to make it a prized possession in any jewelry collection.
