The curving geometric links of these graduated Sterling Turquoise Link Pierced Earrings are inlaid with genuine turquoise—each cabochon individually cut and shaped by Chilean lapidary artists. Sterling silver links and posts. Natural variations will occur.
The turquoise cabochons of these Sterling Turquoise Link Pierced Earrings evoke turquoise curated by the Smithsonian's National Gem and Mineral Collection, housed at our National Museum of Natural History. One of the greatest collections of its kind, the National Gem and Mineral Collection includes over 375,000 individual specimens and such treasured pieces as the Hope Diamond and the turquoise Marie Louise Diadem.
Highly regarded by ancient civilizations for its unique aqua coloring, turquoise is a rare phosphate of copper that only forms in the earth's most dry and barren regions. The name turquoise derives from the fact that this gemstone was brought to Europe from eastern Mediterranean traders, known as Turks. Colors can range from green and greenish blue to sky blue. Turquoise is a birthstone for December.
