Sterling silver and real Turquoise.
Hook dangle earrings measure approximately 1-3/4" long (including hook) and 1/4" wide.
This lovely pair of earrings is a work of art and has everything you could possibly want from a piece of Native American jewelry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Pauline Armstrong, out of authentic sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. A total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) are carefully placed in hand cut bezel settings, while FIVE silver pieces dangle at the end of each earring for an elegant finish.
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.
