THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling Silver and Turquoise.
Post dangle earrings measure approximately 2" long and 1" at widest point.
These gorgeous earrings are absolutely distinctive in each and every way! The earrings are crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The earrings have a total of THIRTY-FOUR stones (SEVENTEEN in each earring) that are delicately set in a silver bezel while twisted silver and mini silver beads accent for a lovely look. A stunning silver piece can be seen dangling in the center for a marvelous 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.
