Sterling silver and real Turquoise.

MEASUREMENTS:

Post earrings measure approximately 7/8" long and 7/8" wide.

DESCRIPTION:

If you are looking for elegance and beauty, you have found it! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Tricia Leekity, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise needlepoint stones. A total of FORTY TWO stones (TWENTY ONE in each earring) are delicately placed in hand cut bezel settings, while twisted silver and mini silver beads add style for an adorable 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 its appeal and beauty.
