STUNNING STATEMENT SET!

This incredible trio features unique inlay butterflies created with stones of black onyx, mother of pearl, turquoise, and red coral. The vintage set was crafted by the late Zuni artisan Rosita Wallace, making it an instant collector. The necklace is a double strand of sterling silver desert pearls with 8 butterfly “blossoms” and a bold naja, and it’s accompanied by a pair of matching post-back earrings and beautiful brooch.

Rosita Wallace ? - 2012 (Zuni) Active since 1950s. Channel inlay. Specializing in butterfly and flower inlay designs. Rosita Walace shares the stamps with her ex-husband Anselm Wallace.

Marks: R. A. W.; R. A. WALLACE (stamped or etched script); A. ROSITA-WALLACE


Rosita Wallace's mosaic inlay style gives her work a delicate look, but the fine quality of her settings make her creations lasting treasures. Rosita created her butterflies in the 1970's, and has become one of the best-known and most widely recognized Zuni artists today. Rosita's work is published in "Zuni Jewelry," by Theda and Michael Bassman, among others.

PRODUCT DISCLAIMERS

INDIAN ARTS & CRAFTS ACT DISCLAIMER

In the absence of a specific assertion or certification to the contrary, Double D Ranch does not warrant, represent, or suggest that any particular item or product which is sold or offered for sale by Double D Ranch in any forum or venue of sale is created or produced by any Indian or Indian Tribe, is an Indian product, or was created by any Indian arts and crafts organization as such terms are defined by the laws of the United States, or the laws of any other jurisdiction, including without limitation, the Indian Arts and Crafts Act and rules set forth by the Indian Arts and Crafts Board.

Double D Ranch supports the goals of the Indian Arts and Crafts Act and the Indian Arts and Crafts Board to prevent fraudulent advertisement, support truth-in-advertising, and prohibit misrepresentation in the marketing of Indian arts and crafts products within the United States.


VINTAGE & OLD PAWN JEWELRY DISCLAIMER

  • Many of the jewelry items we sell are antique, vintage, and/or pre-owned. We acquire these pieces from dealers in New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada, who work exclusively with Native American jewelry and art. That means they had a life before we found them, and they may show evidence of that previous life; signs of wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, broken stones, etc. We strive to be accurate and transparent in our descriptions of these pieces.

  • Jewelry items are not photographed to scale. We’re not trying to be tricky, our clothing items aren’t photographed to scale either (imagine how large that catalog would be!). Please check the description for the item’s dimensions and feel free to email us with any questions.

  • We are not gemologists. We choose pieces based on their overall aesthetic and how well they accessorize the Double D Ranch collection. Due to the high quality of laboratory-made stones and the influx of fake “Native American” jewelry from the Middle East, we rely heavily on our vetted suppliers to maintain a level of confidence in the quality of stones, provenance, and authenticity of each piece. We try our best to accurately describe the stones in our jewelry items but cannot absolutely guarantee them.

  • We celebrate aging. In ourselves, and in our jewelry. We want the true age of the piece to be represented, so we do not perform any type of cleaning or polishing. If the item is oxidized when we acquire it, that is precisely how you will receive it.
