4g each, 0.875" diameter, per earring. Acquired from a private collection in Arizona. The owner inherited from a friend, who would visit the Navajo reservation and Hopi Pueblo in the 1950-60s, and would purchase directly from the artisans. His parents moved to Arizona in 1947 and purchased a grocery store in Mesa, where they served until 1952 when they founded Van's Mobile Homes, aka called Van's RV Trailer Co., which is now in the Sun City Area.
