THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling Silver and Turquoise.
Hook dangle earrings measures approximately 1-3/8" long (including hook) and 3/4" at widest point.
This gorgeous pair of earrings is absolutely distinctive in each and every way! This piece of jewelry is crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise inlay. The inlay is gently set, forming a lovely dragonfly design, while thin silver lines can be seen accenting in between for an outstanding look. Dragonflies are connected with water springtime, fertility, renewal, and are considered a messenger. 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.
