turquoise flat teardrop lever back earrings sterling silver
Turquoise is a sacred stone in many cultures. This bright blue turquoise from China has been hand-faceted. Expect some irregularity, but as a whole these are nice B-/C+ grade quality.
The flat teardrops are 10-12mm wide and 15-19mm long. Some have heavier black or brown veining, and some have very little veining. Most are bright turquoise, but a few are slightly darker. If any ONE of these characteristics (size, veining, brightness) are important to you, please say so. Because of the variation in stones, I can't be more specific than that. The beads in each pair are fairly closely matched. The pictures are pretty representative of what you may get.
All components are meticulously wire-wrapped for beauty and security.
The earrings are 1-3/8 to 1-9/16" (36-40mm) long from the top of the sterling silver lever backs. Default is bright silver but you can also request oxidized sterling.

The earrings are even prettier in person than on the web. I've gotten lots of compliments about them.
