Description
 
These wonderful vintage Zuni earrings feature the type of elegant design of flush inlaid natural turquoise circles and teardrops that the Dishta family is renowned for. The early works of Frank Dishta created this style of delicate, perfectly executed channel inlay, ground flush turquoise in patterns of tiny circles or teardrops. He is one of the early Zuni jewelers who began working for legendary trader C.G. Wallace in the 1920s. His family members included Virgil Sr, Virgil Jr, Vincent Jr. and the younger generations that continues today creating this beautiful, refined inlay style.

The earrings measure 3/4" long by 1/2" wide, with screw backs. Can be converted to posts.
