The beautiful bamboo design surrounding luscious robin's egg blue turquoise offers the perfect color complement to each other, making these very pretty and wearable earrings.
They measure 1 1/8" long and 7/16" at the widest point. The pear shaped natural turquoise cabochon is 3/8" by 1/4" in size, and the small turquoise bead is 2 mm. The earrings weigh a comfortable 3.7 grams.
This color combination is not just for summer. It is perfect with winter black and winter whites, offering the cheerful splash of color so badly needed when the sky is gray. The blue-green color of turquoise historically symbolizes water and sky, fruitful harvests, health and protection. This gemstone has been revered since ancient times in cultures ranging from Persia, ancient Egypt, Tibet and the American Southwest, and it was worn for the hope of security and beauty.
