THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Post earrings measure approximately 5/8" long and 3/8" wide.
This magnificent and traditional pair of earrings represents the finest of Southwestern craftsmanship! The earrings are crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. This pair of earrings has a total of TWO stones (one in each) that are carefully set in silver bezel, while being enveloped with cut through patterns and stamped designs for a beautiful look. 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.
