I have used a trio of natural Turquoise nuggets, each individually wire-wrapped and connected to each other and ending with a silver-plated, lead-free Pewter flower bead drop. The Turquoise nuggets are a beautiful blue color with black veins and webbing. The beads dangle from bass clef shaped sterling silver ear wires. The twisty ear wires add a hint of sparkle to this pretty pair of earrings.
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.
Length: 3 inches from your piercing.
Bead size: nuggets varying from 9 x 10 mm and 9 x 13 mm; 7 x 12 mm flower charm.
The ear wires are of sterling silver. 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.
Care: Clean with soft fabric, or non-abrasive polishing cloth. Avoid direct contact with perfumes, hairspray, and deodorants. Jewelry should be worn after application of cosmetics. Store wrapped in soft fabric or sealed in plastic bag.
