The unique color of the turquoise in these earrings give them a bright, cheery appearance. The turquoise is probably turquoise mountain, or perhaps some colorful Kingman mine. The color goes well with the satin-like-patina of the Sterling. They are 1.5-inches long, and 5/8th's-inches across at the widest point. Weight per earring is 8.8-grams, or .31-ounces. Hallmarked "AL." Always complimentary shipping within the U.S.
