Bring it!

Double D Ranch is pleased to offer this pair of "Grandmother Collar Tips."

These pieces were traditionally worn by older Navajo women, especially during special ceremonies when they would “bring it” and dress their best.  The goal was to display wealth and to extend the number of turquoise pieces, by putting these on the collars of their velvet shirts. 

These vintage  ‘70s tips feature forty-six marquis turquoise cabochons set in sterling silver and accented by sterling drops. and twist wire. Convenient tie tack backs make them easy to add and remove to your favorite blouse or jacket.
