This is an outstanding pair of sterling earrings with turquoise centers. The metal design is superb with the ridged top and bottom and the half beads along the sides. The shape is beautiful as it curves around the half beads. As wonderful as all that is what really catches your eye is the highly figured turquoise pieces set into the center. They are incredible, large pieces of turquoise. Earrings are clips and are marked 925. They are in excellent condition.
