Hi Chris.

I did get all of them. I've been looking through them a bit. Are any of the pieces marked? Just by chance, have you had any tested to see if they're sterling?

Great! Thanks for getting back with me. There aren't any markers marks or artist stamps on any of them are there?

.

The reason I ask, is because without those, identifying just where they come from will be almost impossible. Given the history of turquoise, they are most likely are Zuni or Navajo and I can try to narrow the styles down but for the most part without marks I'm afraid they will generally just fall under Southwestern. I know you were probably hoping for a bit more detail than that.
