I have a piece if jewelry that I am not even sure of what it is. I know they are to wear on the ears and I call them cuffs, but they are not exactly cuffs. The mark inside if very hard to read for me. I will attach photos and see if you can make it out. I can see Sterling and then 2 indiscernible words. The mark is TM and then hand etched a circle with another emblem in the circle. I slightly polished with a cloth trying to get a better view. The other pieces are just some things I have had for about 40 years. Nothing spectacular, but I would love if you could tell me anything about them. The silver band is the only one that is marked and it has a mark of LS and a stamp that looks almost like a face to me. The other pieces have no marks what so ever.
Thank you for any info you can provide on the ear cuffs.
I don’t wear earrings so I might be way off on this but my take is that these are either post or wire hoop-style earrings that have lost their posts or wires ! They look like earrings I have seen made in Mexico. Again, I could be all wet on this and I invite readers of this blog to chime in.
I can’t really read the hallmarks even when I Iightened the photo.
As far as your other items, the big turquoise ring, the ring next to the “ear cuffs” and the coral earrings seem to be in the style of Native American made items but it is hard to tell from the group photo. The coral earrings are squash blossom style since they have the 3 petal squash blossom embellishment at the bottom as you see on the necklaces such as this.
Perhaps your earrings were part of a necklace set in the past.
The little ring between the big turquoise ring and what you are calling “ear cuffs” could be a Bell Trading Co. ring. It looks the style. Read about Bell Trading Co. here.
Here is an example of the type of ring from that company
It is possible that your other items are Native American made or they could just be southwestern style jewelry. It is hard to tell from the photo.
