Coral & Reconstituted Turquoise Drop Earrings

Wonderful native feel to these earrings of beautiful blue and coral colors. Beads measure 6mm-20mm and earrings hang 55.5mm. The beads hang almost 2 inches from 0.925 silver french wire earrings. Comes packaged in a black velveteen jewelry bag. As one of December's birthstones (the other being Zircon), these would make a nice gift.

Turqoise has long been associated with the southwest Native Americans who have created magnificent turquoise jewelry for thousands of years.  The stones were used by the medicine men to work charms, with the blue representing the heavens and green symbolizing the earth.  Apache lore was that turquoise attached to bows would make the shots more accurate. Although often associated with Native Amerians, turquoise is one of the earliest known stones to be used in jewelry. A tomb excavated in 1900 uncovered four magnificent turquoise bracelets on the mummified remains of Queen Zer, who ruled in 5500 B.C.
