Take a trip with us down Historic Route 66 to give your turquoise collection the Texas-sized upgrade it deserves! Your look will be complete with these handmade Desert Opal cross earrings by Navajo Native American artist Diane Bellson. These beautiful earrings are 1.6 inches long.
NOT A TREND: We are proud to say that every detail of these earrings was completely handmade by Native American artists using the same techniques pioneered by their ancestors almost 200 years ago.
QUALITY MATERIALS: Our pieces are Solid Sterling Silver and completely nickle-free. Desert Opals have a distinct interplay of color and light while being as as tough and as rugged as the Southwest itself. Desert Opals are synthetically engineered opals that will not crack or become cloudy. They are not typically sensitive to outdoor temperatures or household chemicals. There is absolutely no oiling, polishing, or maintenance required. Contemporary Native American artists have found that Desert Opals are durable enough to be used in the intricate inlay pieces for which they are known. Different shades of blue and pink are often infused for additional effect and luminosity.
EMPOWERMENT THROUGH EMPLOYMENT: This piece was handmade by a member of a Native American Tribe. We are proud to support these artists by developing collaborative projects that provide employment through the artistic expression of their culture.
OUR GUARANTEE: If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase we offer a no-hassle 30 day return policy! Timberline Traders is a family owned business since 2001 and an A+ rated member of the Better Business Bureau.
