Swarovski and Tibetan Turquoise Earrings
Exquisite, handmade turquoise is beautifully handcrafted to Tibetan silver in this pair of earrings measuring just over 2" in total length. Sparkling Swarovski elongated crystals are afixed above the turquoise, giving the pair a wonderful shine, and the pair is completed with French ball sterling silver earwires.
The most common dangers to turquoise are scratches, sharp blows, hot water, and household chemicals. Because it is a hydrous stone, water or light can change the color of the stones and its relative softness can make it vulnerable to scratches. The pores of the stone will easily absorb body oils or other oils causing the stone to yellow over time. Do not use an ultrasonic cleaner on Turquoise and avoid chlorine.
