Post hoop earrings measure approximately 5/8" long (including hook) and 1/4" at widest point.
This is a very exquisite pair of earrings that must not be overlooked!

There is a total of SIX Turquoise stones (THREE in each) that are carefully set, while mini silver beads can be seen accenting the stones for a fantastic 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.
