Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Post hoop earrings measure approximately 5/8" long and 1/4" at widest point.
This is truly an outstanding pair of earrings that will make a great impression! This piece of Native American jewelry was Zuni hand crafted by artist Tina Gasper, out of genuine sterling silver and man made Turquoise inlay. The inlay is carefully set, while thin silver lines accent in between for a fabulous 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.
