These earrings were made to make you feel as 'happy as a clam'! I have used a pair of small Greek Copper clam charms with a blue patina for these earrings. The charms dangle at the ends of a length of natural Turquoise rondelles. The earwires are of 14k gold-fill. Sure to bring a smile to your face!
Turquoise is associated with gods and goddesses of many ancient cultures from China, the Middle East, and the Americas. It was worn by Pharoahs and Aztec Kings. Native Americans used the stone symbolizing the sea and sky coming together, to bless warriors and hunters. Turquoise is thought to attract prosperity and success, enhance creativity and communication. Turquoise is the alternate birthstone for December. Turquoise is the gemstone for those born under the Zodiac sign of Sagittarius, November 22 to December 21. Almost all turquoise has been treated with a transparent resin in order to stabilize it, as it is a fragile stone in an untreated state.
14K Gold-Filled (14K GF) beads are made by bonding a layer of 14K gold with high pressure and heat to base metal and then shaped as desired. Industry standard requires that the quantity of gold be at least 1/20th of the total weight and the Karat measurement must be marked.
Length: 2.25 inches from your piercing.
Bead size: 5 mm rondelles; 10 mm clam charm.
All ear wires from Sundancegems come with a clear medical grade PVC ear clutch or stopper. These fit snug on the ear wire, and prevent you from loosing your earrings.
