Kingman Turquoise and Gold Leaf Earrings

in: Earrings, SALE




Kingman Turquoise and Gold Leaf Earrings- I have to be honest - it is not often that I pair turquoise with Gold (in this case, Gold Fill ([GF] - please read my note below regarding GF jewelry). But, I think these generously sized Kingman Turquoise nuggets (approximately 12mm round) pair beautifully with the GF wire, beads, and the leaf dangling at the bottom of the earring.  The earrings are wired to GF Leverback ear wires, for a comfortable, secure closure.

The earrings measure 2 1/4"  in length from the top of the GF ear wire to the bottom of the earring. 

All metals used in this design are Gold Fill.

Gold Filled vs. Gold Plated: Not the same! The amount of gold used in gold plated (GP) Jewelry is less than .05%. The gold is electro-plated to the base metal alloy (usually jeweler's brass). One tiny scratch on plated metal can expose the base metal. The amount of gold used in Gold Filled (GF) jewelry is 100% more than Gold Plated - 5%. The base metal alloy is literally sandwiched between two layers of gold. As long as one takes care of their GF jewelry, it can last a lifetime. To clean, without scratching, use an untreated cloth or mild soapy water. Do not scrub the piece.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
