THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Hook dangle earrings measure approximately 2-1/4" long (including hook) and 5/8" at the widest point.
This is truly an outstanding pair of earrings that will make a great impression! This adorable piece of jewelry is crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The earrings have a total of FOUR stones (TWO in each earring) that are gently set in silver bezel while being accented by twisted silver, silver beads and cut through patterns for an excellent 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.
