THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Post earrings measure approximately 1/2" in diameter.
These are a stunning pair of earrings! Hand made out of genuine sterling silver and man made Turquoise stones. The earrings are set with one turquoise stone that is gently wrapped in plain silver bezel, while imprinted work create lovely concho pieces for a dazzling finish. 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.
