Turquoise Cascade Oxidized Silver Earrings

42.00

What is it about turquoise?  It's earthy, natural beauty?  It's perfectly calming color?  These lovely earrings are made of gorgeous turquoise teardrops and a delicate cascade of small turquoise dangles. Oxidized silver give them an old world feel.  Leverback earwires. Measure 1 3/4". Sterling silver.

About turquoise:  The name turquoise means "Turkish stone" because the trade route that brought it to Europe came via Turkey. Turquoise is a non-translucent stone of which the most valuable specimens are robin's egg blue or deep-blue azure.  It also comes in brown, yellow, and many shades of green. The veins are inclusions from nearby rock fragments or oxides that form during the creation of turquoise.

Turquoise, the gemstone worn by pharaohs and Aztec kings, is probably one of the oldest gemstones known. Native Americans and many of the Indian tribes in Mexico used turquoise for currency, and the stone is still associated with the religious rites of the Navajo. Because it remains fashionable, turquoise is quite highly prized, although it is fairly plentiful.

Your jewelry will arrive beautifully gift wrapped in a small box. If this is a gift being shipped directly to the recipient, please let me know. I will be glad to include a note from you.
