18K Gold Persian Turquoise Triple Drop Earrings

These one of a kind earrings are an homage to natural wonder. We are taken to another place and time, to the Persian Empire and bazaars along the Silk Road, where the gemstone has been mined since 4,000 BCE.   Persian Turquoise stones are a kaleidoscope of color. Mother Nature paints the many colors of turquoise with her exquisite palette, using copper, aluminum, and zinc to achieve an array of blues and greens. The top stone measures 1/2 x 3/8"  while the largest is 3/4 x 1/2". The total length of the earring is 2.5".  These 23.75 carat triple drop earrings are bezel set by hand in recycled 18K gold. The ovals are dusted with a few specks of copper, mesmerizing us with a dynamic pattern that activates the stones from every angle.
