Genuine Turquoise Modern Minimal Earrings: 8mm round beads hang on wires with flattened ends. Wires swing freely from earrings for movement. Wires are attached so the flattened ends face forward when worn. A simple, modern take on Turquoise jewelry. These beads have stunning vibrant shades of turquoise with mainly brown matrix. The material comes from the Kingman deposit in Mineral Park Mine, Arizona. Gorgeous teal blue turquoise color. I purchased these beads directly from the family-owned company in Kingman that mines and processes this Turquoise. (Kingman Turquoise is stabilized as nearly all Turquoise is, but the colors are always natural.)
SIZE: Beads are 8mm across. Total length including earwires is about 1 5/8 inches (42mm).
Expect features characteristic of natural stone beads, including surface imperfections, inclusions, etc. Note that colors and brightness vary on different monitors. You get the exact piece shown here.
METAL: Pins that beads hang on are .925 Sterling Silver. Earwires are Argentium, a special form of Sterling Silver that is brighter and more resistant to tarnish (storing it in a closed container when not wearing for periods of time is still recommended). According to argentiumsilver.com it is more pure (.935 silver) and is made exclusively from recycled silver. Clear ear clutches are included with earwires if you wish to use them for extra security.
