These gorgeous, American-mined 9 mm round genuine Turquoise cabochons were perfect for a stunning pair of earrings. The turquoise is bezel set in .999 fine silver on sterling silver back plates. Sterling silver connectors are on the top and bottom. 6 mm Italian "Onyx" (description below) hangs on sterling silver wire on the bottoms. The ear wires are sterling silver.
Like the classical stone used to make elaborate mantle pieces in Southern Europe, Italian "onyx" is as beautiful as it is timeless. A type of onyx marble, no two beads are exactly alike.
