Native American Earrings
Even though Native American earrings are a beautiful fashion
statement, there are still people who believe in their traditional
powers. Native American earrings in particular have been used for
personal adornment, spirituality, and a form a wealth. There are
references to earrings going back to early human history.
In some cultures it was believed that earrings would ward off bad
spirits from entering the ear, much like the belief in a dream
catcher to the American Indians. Depending on the Native American
Tribe, some believe they add to a person's inner strength, and
provide healing powers. At SilverTribe we carry many of the
traditional earring designs and most popular Indian earring types
along with an extensive collection of Southwest
Earrings. Some of our earring designs include Coral earrings,
earrings, Opal earrings,
earrings, lapis earrings,
Lapis earrings, Azurite earrings,
earrings, Oyster earrings,
earrings and the ever so popular bead earrings.
Many people love Native earrings because they are made from so many
natural resources such as animal bone, plants, shells, stones, and
wood. Various metals such as Copper, Gold, and Silver were
introduced later on. Silver being soft and easy to work with
eventually became the material of choice by most of the Native
American Indians. These earrings are now made in every shape,
style, and color, most of these complimented by various
semi-precious stones and shells such as Turquoise, Onyx, Coral and
Mother of Pearl. Whether you're looking for a contemporary onyx earring or
would like a more traditional setting like a Navajo style Turquoise
earring, we have a pair for you. Check out the hundreds of
Native American earrings we have listed for you.
Hoop earrings are extremely popular and are available in styles
from small and conservative to large flashy and bold. No wardrobe
is complete without them. Native American hoop earrings come in two
varieties: full-hoop and half-hoop. From these two basic hoop
earring styles numerous varieties have been developed. Full-hoop
earrings are simple, but make a bold fashion statement. In
actuality, they are rings that are fashioned into hoops from plain
wire or tubing. The wire hoop style is often worn with no
additional decoration or ornamentation, and come in many widths and
sizes and make a bold and loud statement. Tubing hoops, being much
stronger in their design, can support beadwork and dangles.
Semi-precious stones are easily incorporated into Native American
hoop earrings giving them a limitless variety of colors and styles.
With a strong base, stones can be inlaid, have channel settings, or
Native American Indians also love dangle earrings, and can range
from large chandelier style earrings to simple beaded clusters.
Some Native American cultures believed earrings were a sign of
wealth; you guessed it, the bigger the better. Made of single or
multi-colored stones, these unique dangle creations combine to give
a free flowing motion to all earring pieces, drawing even more
attention to the wearer's face. These dangle earrings may come with
wires, which are easily worn and just slip on, or with posts. Most
Native American Tribes have their own distinct type of dangle
earring, and range from a simple silver drop to very elaborate
styles with stones and beads. Native American Tribes are also
inclined to form earrings of many types of animals and designs
unique to their spiritual beliefs, such as horse earrings, the
Kokopelli, feather earrings, and water wave designs.
Now for our more conservative customers we carry Native American
post earrings which can be some of the most sophisticated earrings
around. The stud earring can be plain and is usually a small single
stone but post earrings come with remarkable silverwork, and
beautiful inlay and stone settings. Many Native American Indian
post earrings styles use the mounting as the main design, or focal
point. Whether it's a plain silver earring or an intricate turtle
earring, all post earrings sit on the ear lobe and can easily be
made with a dangle attached to them. For our more conservative
customers this is the perfect style for you. The traditional style
of some of our Native American post earrings are a subtle and
timeless addition to anyone's Native American Jewelry
