You will absolutely fall in love with this stunning pair of earrings! This piece of jewelry is crafted out of genuine sterling silver and Multicolor inlay. The inlay consists of: real Turquoise Coral, and man made Opal. The earrings are reversible, they can be worn on either side, one side being Turquoise and Opal, and the other side being Apple Coral and Opal (it's like having two pairs of earrings in one). The inlay is carefully set, while creating a gorgeous design. Thin silver lines can be seen accenting in between the inlay adding style. Twisted silver and stamped designs can also be seen accenting the earrings for a perfect 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.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin, it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
