THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Hook dangle earrings measure approximately 1-7/8" long (including hook) and 1/2" at widest point.
This is truly an outstanding pair of earrings! The earrings are a gorgeous piece of jewelry that are crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise inlay. The inlay is carefully set, while placed on top of a stunning feather design. The earrings are highlighted with thin silver lines, stamped patterns, and cut through designs for a marvelous finish. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force. 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.
