THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Post earrings measure approximately 1/2" long and 1/4" at widest point.
What a fabulous pair of post earrings. Zuni hand made out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. This pair of earrings has a total of EIGHT stones (FOUR in each one) that are carefully placed in hand cut serrated silver bezel settings, while mini silver beads can be seen accenting for a spectacular 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.
