THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling Silver and Turquoise.
Hook dangle earrings measure approximately 1-7/8" long (including hook), and 3/8" at widest point.
We bring to you this adorable pair of earrings! The earrings are hand crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The earrings have a total of TWO stones (ONE in each earrings) that are carefully set in a silver bezel, while silver beads and imprinted leaf patterns can be seen highlighting the earrings for a lovely 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.
