These Calvin Begay earrings are perfect in so many ways, from the lovely inlay work to their versatility. Calvin Begay is a talented designer of Native American jewelry, and his Navajo artists handcraft each piece. Together, they create a variety of inlaid jewelry with different stones. The Starry Night Collection, as you see in these earrings, is their most recognized work. They create pictures of starry night skies using very intricate inlay work. These earrings, for example, are based in black jet with a little lab-cultured opal to lighten them up. The stars are made of tiny silver pieces of varying size. An enormous amount of work is required in this type of Native American jewelry and these artists are exceptionally talented.
The straightforward design and shape of these Calvin Begay earrings makes them versatile; they can be worn casually or dressed up for a formal event. The black color is elegant while the work involved in their creation is a fun conversation starter. Their rectangular shape gradually grows wider towards the bottom. These earrings hang from sterling silver posts and come with backings. With the posts at the top, these earrings are 1 1/4" in length.
