Sweet and petite, these turquoise sea turtle stud earrings will capture the light beneath the waves! The body is solid sterling silver, as is the post. The turtle’s shell is represented by a mosaic of turquoise stones. By happy coincidence, the mosaic echos the play of light that filters through the ocean to the turtle’s playground.
Among Indigenous tribes, the turtle symbolizes Mother Earth in all her glory: Longevity, good health, perseverance, and protection.
The tiny turquoise sea turtle design measures approximately 12 mm in diameter. That translates to approximately half an inch, with the mosaic measuring a petite 1/8 inch across. The body is tested to confirm .925 sterling silver purity and the pair weighs 1.5 grams. Our jewelry is polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our fine jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
