Excellent craftsmanship can be seen throughout these delightful earrings! This gorgeous piece of jewelry is crafted out of genuine sterling silver and man made Turquoise inlay. The inlay is carefully set, while sterling silver highlights the edges of the earrings 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.
