John King White Buffalo and Sterling Silver Freeform Earrings
These dramatic sterling silver and White Buffalo freeform earrings are completely handmade by Navajo artist, John King. The natural white and black coloration of the stone is striking! Simple stamping on the bezel keeps the attention on this rare stone and gives the earrings a modern look. These earrings are so versatile and so unique. The large oblong freeform shape gives off a bold yet fashionable statement.
White Buffalo Stone, commonly called White Buffalo Turquoise, is from a single mine near Tonopah, Nevada. It is known for its distinct beauty and purity. While similar to turquoise in its structure and formation, its stunning white and black color is due to the lack of heavy metals like copper, iron and zinc, which are responsible for the characteristic blues, greens and yellows found in turquoise. With only a single mine in existence the value continues to increase as the resources are depleted.
