THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Hook dangle earrings measure approximately 1-5/8" (including hook) long and 5/8" at widest point.
This is truly an outstanding pair of earrings that will make a great impression! This piece of jewelry is crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. A total of TWENTY TWO stones (ELEVEN in each earring) are gently set in silver bezel settings, while mini silver beads and cut through work can be seen creating a lovely leaf design for an adorable look. 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.
