THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling Silver, Coral and Turquoise.
Post dangle earrings measure approximately 2-3/8" long and 7/8" at widest point.
Looking at such beauty tell the capabilities of Southwest art! These earrings are crafted out of genuine sterling silver along with real Turquoise stones and real Corals. The earrings have a total of ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT stones (FIFTY-FOUR in each earring) that are carefully set in silver bezel while twisted silver and mini silver beads can be seen accenting for an excellent look. SEVEN dangles can be seen highlighting the bottom of each earring for a perfect 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.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin, it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
