THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise (Matrix may vary slightly).
Post dangle earrings measure approximately 1-3/4" long and 7/8" at widest point.
This lovely pair of earrings will definitely attract plenty of attention! The earrings are crafted out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise stones and real Turquoise inlay. The earrings have a total of FOUR stones (TWO in each earring) that are delicately set in silver bezel while being accented by stunning overlaid designs. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second layer is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pair of earrings, the second layer forms a variety of designs. A marvelous inlaid Butterfly design can be seen highlighting and completing the earrings beautifully. Stamped patterns can be seen accenting the back of the earrings for a marvelous 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.
