Here we have simple, bright Turquoise and Lapis earrings set in sterling. The natural, clear Sleeping Beauty Turquoise comes from Arizona as do the cute tiny nuggets. The beautiful dark Lapis is from Afghanistan.

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is famous for its quality, the stones are rivaled only by those from the old Persian Turquoise mines. Sleeping Beauty is hard material and so is rarely stabilized or dyed (though any white matrix was often colored with black shoe polish). The mine produced large quantities of quality Turquoise but finally closed in 2012. The price, once quite reasonable, continues to rise as rough gets more scarce.

These earrings have volume and movement along with lovely color. Please order them today.
