This amazing pair of earrings depicts the beauty and elegance of the great Southwest! This gorgeous piece of jewelry is crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise inlay. The inlay is carefully set, while accenting a fantastic Sun design. Thin silver lines can be seen highlighting the earrings for a perfect finish. In some beliefs, the sun is the provider of life, warmth, growth, and all that is good. 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.
