THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver, Jet and Turquoise.
Hook dangle earrings measure approximately 2-1/8" long (including hook) and 3/4" at widest point.
What a fantastic pair of earrings! The earrings are a gorgeous piece of jewelry that are crafted out of genuine sterling silver along with real Jet and Turquoise stones. This pair of earrings has a total of FOUR stones (TWO in each) that are delicately set in silver bezel while being accented by the stones matrix for a fabulous look. 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.
