- 11.25 carats Sleeping Beauty turquoise
- Natural (stabilised) turquoise
- Well matched, gem quality, briolettes
- One off design
These gold vermeil turqouse earrings are handmade from two well-matched, AAA grade, Sleeping Beauty turquoise briolettes weighing a total of 11.25 carats. The briolettes are a smooth drop shape and are well cut with a glossy polish and are of a true, bright blue colour with minimal veining. The briolettes are hand wrapped in 18k gold vermeil wire and are presented on 24k gold heavy-plated sterling silver ear wires with sycamore leaf design.
The ear wires used in this piece have a satin finish with a 40-mil thick layer of genuine 24k gold over sterling silver - a far more substantial layer than traditional plating techniques.
