The silver hoop of each earring is stamped with "new moon" arches. At the top of the ring is a silver attachment with seashell appearance. Each silver hoop is adorned with three beautiful green oval domed turquoise gemstones. The earrings are fitted for pierced ears.

The earrings are stamped with sterling and what appears to be Jamco.


Condition: very good condition
