This is a one of kind pair of .925 Sterling Silver Earrings using top-notch turquoise and Royston Ribbon Turquoise matched pair stones. Statement earrings with 10X17mm posts on top (7X14mm oval turquoise cabochons with .925 twist border), with dangles of bezel-set royston ribbon turquoise (approx 14X16mm). Comfortable "post-drop earring design disperses the weight of these stunning western stones. All traditional silversmithing is done in my Kensington, MD studio.
Royston Ribbon Turquoise is a truly unique and special gift of the earth to us, taken from the famous Royston Turquoise mine in Nevada. These 2 cabochons are nearly the mirror image of each other -- the lapidary artist has done a beautiful job here making sure of a beautiful match. The gorgeous, deep blue "river" of turquoise runs through the stone and feels like a burst of energy when you see them move in person. One of my favorite pairs -- a true collectible as carefully cut American turquoise becomes more and more rare.
Royston Ribbon stones measure 14mmx16mm
Oval Turquoise stones measure 7X14mm
Total length 1 3/8 in.
All traditional silversmithing done in my Kensington, MD studio.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character.
All jewelry designs are created using natural gemstones. There will be some natural variation in the jewelry. Our best is done to represent colors and markings in our photos. At Linda Blackbourn Jewelry, I've tried my best to describe everything as accurately as possible -- in words and photos. Gemstones vary, of course, as do computer monitor screens, so there may be minor discrepancies.
