This listing is for one of three pairs of boho turquoise earrings - Pilot Mountain Turquoise Earrings to be exact. You choose the pair in the drop-down below. You can choose the pair that is made and featured in the photos or you can choose a pair of cabochons from the following photos for a pair of custom drop earrings in the same sterling silver design, using the stones you choose. The photo of the cabochons will be highlighted when you choose.
This design and the stones are for real. We love the details of the hammered sterling silver linking to the uniquely highlighted stone. We've pulled out the hand-tools for this one using a chisel for the making for each OOAK one of a kind piece. A great way to have a custom pair of earrings from your friendly neighborhood silversmith!
The markings on this Pilot Mountain Turquoise are like I've never seen.

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 its 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.
