THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Hook dangle earrings measure slightly under 2-3/4" long (including hook) and 5/8" at widest point.
These are an outstanding pair of earrings! Hand made out of genuine sterling silver and man made Turquoise heishi beads. The silver imprinted concho earrings are highlighted with a total of five dangles that are accented with turquoise heishi beads and silver beads for a dazzling appearance. Earrings are stamped sterling.
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.
