Anyone seen this type of Native American Earring before?

These came in a batch with some other pieces I purchased. The turquoise really does appear to be genuine, but I have no idea if these are native American or they’re from Thailand.:roll_eyes: There are no marks on the back of these. Any ideas would be helpful in my search. Thanks!

Your instinct to question them is correct. These are definitely not Native American and do look to be of Asian origin.

I think the watch tip necklace is a great way to use, rather than discard.
Although, I would love to have any of these watch tip sets to use on a watch.
Sadly, fewer and fewer people are wearing watches these days, unless they are “smart” watches who are basically wrist phones/computers/cameras.

The tiny flowers made of dots are a tip off. This feature is usually on items from Asia.

I have been taking the larger Fred Harvey singleton earrings and getting Rocky at Perry Null to add a loop.

hard to tell scale, but that looks like it would get way more use and exposure.

would also work as a pin or brooch me thinks

Love it! Gosh I really got to get it together and send a couple things to them to fix. It’s just such a hassle with our post office sometimes.
