Overview & Details

Chaco Canyon Southwest Zuni Turquoise Sterling Silver Earrings
Many a brave Indian warrior of the past owed their life to traditional "breastplates" woven of animal bones and beads worn across the chest during battle. Today, these largely ornamental pieces are mostly used in Native American tribal ceremonies. Inspired by this tradition, the talented artisans at Chaco Canyon crafted these earrings to replicate the look of tribal breastplates. These pretty earrings might not be lifesavers, but we predict they will provide you many years of fashionable service! 

Design Information
  • Sterling silver earrings crafted of elongated turquoise stones and metal bead accents on a blackened background

Good to Know

  • Moisture, skin oils and environmental factors can change the color of turquoise jewelry if left untreated. But stabilizing turquoise helps preserve the stone's normal color. Natural, mined turquoise nuggets are heated at a very low temperature for about a week, slowly drawing out moisture without damaging the texture. The stones are then placed into acrylic or polymer chemicals to replace water molecules. This stabilizes the stone and keeps its beauty and value intact.

  • Due to the composition and natural properties of mined gemstones, the product image may show slight differences to the actual stone in color saturation, tone, hue or other gemstone characteristics such as phenomena, color banding and color matrix.


  • Gemstones and pearls are sometimes treated to enhance their natural beauty. To learn more and find out about care instructions see details.
