I have used natural Turquoise beads from the famous Hubei Province of China to create this pair of chandelier earrings. I purchase my Turquoise beads from a reputable USA company, and I know that they are real natural Turquoise. The fan shaped link with tribal markings is made from lead-free Pewter. The sparkling silver beads are silver-plated Pyrite beads. The chandeliers hang from silver-filled earwires. A delightful and fun pair of earrings. This can be worn with blue-jeans or a black dress for a night out on the town.
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. 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.
Silver filled products are comprised of 10% silver, the silver is mechanically bonded to a brass core for a sturdy structure and is resistant to tarnishing. 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.
