Absolutely love this design. These antique earrings come from the Miao tribe of China. These are replicas of old Miao earrings from China.
Miao silver is an alloy and the silver content of these isnt known.
These earrings can be worn putting the hook directly through a stretched ear piercing. The size of the hook is abut 3.5 mm. Otherwise the hook can be opened up a bit and the ear wire can be threaded through this would not require a stretched piercing.
2.5 inches long and 36g

metaphysical properties of turquoise: Metaphysically, Turquoise is considered to be a bridge between Heaven/Sky and Earth, grounding us while still remaining open to Spirit. Many Native American cultures believe Turquoise helps to connect the mind to the infinite possibilities of the Universe, and Turquoise is considered sacred in many Chinese cultures as well. Turquoise is a wonderful companion to use when removing and releasing old behaviors such as self-sabotage and self-martyrdom that no longer serves in growth.
Turquoise is great for working with the Throat Chakra, to foster honest and clear communication from the heart, and with Water and Air Elements. Enhancing intuition, Turquoise also enhances communication between the physical and spiritual realms. Use Turquoise to release old vows, express freely, and ease nerves when speaking in public. Turquoise is a protective stone, often being used for amulets. Turquoise is also a healing stone, providing strength and purification.
