Look at this outstanding pair of earrings! The earrings are hand made out of genuine sterling silver and man made Turquoise inlay. The inlay is carefully set, while stamped patterns create a fantastic lizard design. Thin silver lines can be seen highlighting in between and completing the earrings perfectly. The 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.
