This earring is designed with drop cut blue turquoise stones. All my jewelry is hand crafted with pure and sterling silver. The gold color is done by coating silver with 18 karat gold. Each turquoise stone has its own texture and color which differ slightly from one another. I will be prepareing a new pair for you. Please not that due to the nature of natural stones; they may have little marks, layers or lines, as well as slight color variation which I believe makes each piece unique. I prefer using natural stones as they are so beautiful with each one believed to have certain emotional and healing powers. These little lines, marks and layers actually make them one of a kind.
Turquoise' name originates from 'Turkish'. It’s a copper aluminium phosphate with a hardness of 6, i.e. considerably softer than quartz. The shining sky blue is one of the most popular trend colours in the world of jewellery and fashion. Turquoise has been esteemed for thousands of years as a holy stone, a bringer of good fortune or a talisman. It really does have the right to be called a 'gemstone of the peoples'. The oldest evidence for this claim was found in Egypt, where grave furnishings with turquoise inlay were discovered, dating from approximately 3000 B.C.. The colour of the turquoise makes us feel happy and cheerful, for in it the light blue of the sky and the stimulating green of the sea are combined. Indeed it is such an inimitable colour that we have coined a term specifically for it in our languages: turquoise. Anyone choosing a turquoise is sure to enjoy a piece of Heaven on Earth.
