Vintage Native American Turquoise Jewelry by Rick Richardson
These earrings are handmade by Native American jewelry artists. Each earring has a Kingman Turquoise stone set on top. Below, these have a matte sterling silver design with intricate stamping. The stamped design is very interesting and has been blackened in order to stand out better. These are from Rick Richardson's Elegant Ranch Collection, which is high-quality Native American turquoise jewelry. Pieces from this collection feature vintage styling with genuine stones. While they are new, the matte finish gives these earrings the look of classic turquoise jewelry. Each earring measures 1 1/2" x 3/4" and has sterling posts on the back. If you enjoy vintage turquoise jewelry you should definitely consider the Elegant Ranch Collection.
Rick Richardson was a Caucasian man from New Mexico who employed Navajo Indians to handmake his designs. Unfortunately, he recently passed away but his group of artists still produces wonderful pieces.
