Genuine Kingman turquoise from Arizona is cut into rustic flat teardrop shapes and set with .935 sterling silver in these one-of-a-kind earrings. The Kingman turquoise mine produces ethically sourced turquoise that ranks among the world's finest. It's also notable for its incredible variety. The stones here are a rich sky blue, with contrasting brown matrix. Each polished stone has a faint trace of green on one side, showing that they were cut from the same piece of turquoise. This Southwestern earring style - slices of turquoise mounted on hook ear wires - is sometimes called Santo Domingo (perhaps after the Santo Domingo Pueblo jewelry makers in New Mexico) and sometimes "tab" or "slab" earrings. I've put them on handmade sterling silver ear wires. Simple and becoming, they're perfect everyday earrings and would make a wonderful gift for someone who loves turquoise, or jewelry that makes you feel connected to the earth. 
- Stone size: Just over 1 inch x 3/4 inch (29mm x 20mm)
- Earring length including ear wires:  1 3/4 inches (45mm)
Turquoise, a December birthstone, is one of the oldest known gemstones. It has been prized as a talisman of good luck, protection and leadership. It is thought to help with communication and even to overcome writer's block.

Care: Avoid exposing to chemicals (bleach, chlorine, household cleaners, beauty products, etc.), and never use chemicals or machines to clean turquoise jewelry. Wipe the stone with a damp cloth occasionally. You can use a chemically treated jewelry wipe or cloth on the silver only. Store in a way that will avoid scratching by other jewels or anything sharp -- for example, on an earring tree, in a little plastic bag inside a jewelry box, or in a hanging jewelry organizer. Keep away from children. I offer two-week returns and a six-month warranty against defective workmanship -- see my shop policies for details. They're located toward the bottom of my Profile page, in an unobtrusive gray box that also contains Review and About. Get to my Profile page by clicking on the blue River of Beauty Designs link near the top of any of this or any of my product pages, right under the name of the item.
