THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Hook earrings measure approximately 3-1/8" long (including hook) and 5/8" at widest point.
Looking at such beauty tells the capabilities of Southwestern art! The earrings are a gorgeous piece of jewelry that are crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise inlay. The inlay is carefully set in silver bezels while forming a beautiful design for a lovely 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.
