Oxidized sterling silver gives the look of vintage jewelry to these traditional style repoussé, hand-stamped Carico Lake Turquoise earrings. A staple addition to your Southwest fashion collection, Carico Lake Turquoise is also a collectible North American Turquoise with an astonishing color palette. Ranging from highly unique electric greens to sky blue; from teal to mossy, earthy greens. And rarely, a nugget with both earth and sky color. The highest grade Carico Lake Turquoise is gem-quality American turquoise. Originally known as Stone Cabin, and then Aurora #8, Carico Lake Turquoise has a colorful history for a dried-up lake bed in a remote part of Lander County. The mine has come to rest with the owner of Sunwest Silver Company, Ernest Montoya.

These Sterling Silver earrings by Harold Joe are a perfect example of traditional Navajo repoussé metal working techniques. In repoussé, the metal is softened and hammered by hand from the reverse side, to create the low-relief pattern on the front side of the piece.
