The stones in these earrings come from Turquoise Mountain near Kingman, Arizona, one of three prehistoric turquoise mines in the state. Renowned for its clarity, Kingman turquoise has been mined for centuries. Displayed for maximum effect in these earrings, teal blue Kingman turquoise is fashioned into teardrops that dangle from sterling silver caps accented by cabochons. Earrings measure 1-7/8" long x 1/4" wide on sterling silver posts and clutch. Mined and made in America.
Take a journey to the turquoise mines of Arizona with Carolyn Pollack's Newest collection. Set in 14K gold and sterling silver, these turquoise designs hail from two Arizona mines. While Kingman nuggets are bright blue and green with black matrix, Sleeping Beauty is a vibrant blue color with no matrix. Some pieces feature both types of turquoise creating a unique and natural look.
Like all fine jewelry, Carolyn Pollack Sterling Silver Jewelry should be handled carefully. Store jewelry in a plastic bag, dry and wrapped in tissue paper, when not being worn or displayed. Clean sterling silver with a silver polishing cloth when necessary, but never subject to chlorine, silver dips, chemical solutions or ultrasonic cleaners, as these substances can cause the genuine gemstones to discolor. Never wear jewelry in a swimming pool.
