Painstakingly handmade from start to finish by Chilean artisans, this ensemble places hand-cut turquoise, obtained from the Andes mountains, in stunning sterling silver settings. Its elegant simplicity recalls the motifs of the ancient Aztec, whose tradition held that turquoise brought prosperity. Made in Chile.
Earrings were beautiful; however, when I first tried to put them on I could feel how delicate the stem was attached to the back of the earring. The attachment was not strong, but soft. I was not surprised when I came home one night and discovered that one of them had simply come off and I had lost the earring. The stem must be attached to the back of the earring so that it will not break, or they need to be attached with a hook through the ear and not a stem clasp.
