Genuine Turquoise Long Earrings: Stacks of three polished medium chip beads swing from chain and leverbacks for an elegant, modern take on Turquoise chip jewelry. These beads have lovely shades of sky blue or aqua turquoise with a little tan and dark matrix. The material comes from the Kingman deposit in Mineral Park Mine, Arizona. This variety is called New Boulder. I selected these beads in person directly from the 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 average 10-11mm across. Total length including leverbacks is 2 1/8 inches (54mm).
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: All metal components are at least .925 Sterling Silver. The leverback style earwires offer extra security and 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.
SHIPPING: Ships within USA via Priority Mail with insurance. Each additional item purchased from my shop at the same time ships for $2 (each item packed individually in its own gift box). Ships to Canada via First Class with insurance. (buyer is responsible for any duty/tax)
PACKAGING/GIFTS: Jewelry is carefully packed in a 100% recycled kraft-covered gift box tied with eco-friendly hemp cord (color varies). If you would like a printed receipt, let me know when you check out. Jewelry is ready for gift-giving (no price tags).
