Post earrings measure approximately 1" long and 3/4" at widest point.
These are a gorgeous pair of post earrings! The earrings are hand made out of genuine sterling silver and man made Green Turquoise stones. The earrings have a total of TWO stones (one in each earring) that are carefully set in hand cut bezel settings, while being surrounded by a shiny silver base that highlights the stone for a beautiful finish. The earrings are stamped sterling and hallmarked.
Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of their appeal and beauty.
