Native American Earrings
Are earrings just an accessory? For many people, the answer is no, it’s a way of life. At Southwest Jewelry Designs (SJD), we agree completely. That’s why our mission is to procure unique pieces of Native American and Southwest earrings. In fact, in Native American culture, the significance that goes into wearing and making these pieces goes much deeper.
Earrings have been a rite of passage for centuries and are worn for the rest of our lives. We want to do that fact justice by bringing art to your ears. The Native American earrings featured on our website come from the Zuni, Hopi, and Navajo tribes. Our team meets with artists and come home with only the best of their work.

Our collection has gold and silver earrings, turquoise pieces, various gemstones of the southwest, clip-on earrings, and hoop earrings with fine engravings, Native American earrings that have traditional symbols and animals that represent the artist’s tribe. Not only will you see original earrings, but you’ll get art that tells a story.
Zuni earrings have been a popular commodity for hundreds of years. Most Zuni earrings can be told apart by the colorful presence of multiple stone types and the use of different animal symbols to signify their connection with nature. Needlepoint Zuni earrings are a fine example of their mastery of stone-cutting techniques, getting large stones filed down to sharp blades that blend into one collaged masterpiece.
The use of Turquoise for jewelry and ceremonial purposes by Southwest Indians dates back thousands of years and one of the most prevalent tribes is the Navajo. Navajo earrings often feature one large stone, set into fine sterling silver. These Navajo earrings are usually statement pieces that really pop when you wear them with simple and elegant outfits. These pieces are made by experts hands with years of experience and techniques that date back hundreds of years, passed on to one generation to the next.
Hopi earrings traditionally are made by constructing silver with two thin sheets and cutting them in such a way that they produce a sharp image of Native American symbolism when the two sheets are combined, either by inlay or overlay. Our Hopi earrings depict powerful symbols and beliefs such as the Bear Claw, a symbol of protection and a connection to the animal, and the Sun, healing, energy, and in some cultures is considered to be the giver of life.
