Long, Navajo Thunderbird earrings with moonstone beads
These sweet thunderbirds sing with their history. Apparently, Thunderbird’s name comes from the old Native American belief that the beating of its enormous wings causes thunder and stirs the wind. Super flattering, these long earrings feature a line of graduating hollow silver beads that end with a lavender moonstone bead and a stamped Thunderbird. A beautiful and elegant example of Navajo design, they'll make a great addition to your "finds-from-around-the-world" jewelry collection.

Please note: (1) All the jewelry in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewelry.
(2) All the jewelry has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewelry is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewelry is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than the actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
