THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Post dangle earrings measure approximately 7/8" long and 3/8" wide.
This lovely pair of earrings are a work of art and has everything you could possibly want from a piece of Southwestern jewelry! The earrings are crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise inlay. The inlay is carefully set, while thin silver lines can be seen in between adding style. Earrings are stamped sterling.
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.
