This is an Afghan turquoise and freshwater pearl necklace. Nouveau Boutique created this single strand necklace with unusual leather-polished up to 14 x 20 mm turquoise beads and 7 x 14 mm large freshwater button shaped pearls. A 6.5 inch long heavy block sterling silver chain with a large hook clasp is connected at both ends. The matching pair of 2 inch drop earrings are hand wired with sterling fish hooks and .5 inch *HillTribal Silver charms dangling at the ends.
*HillTribe Silver has a higher silver content than Sterling Silver (99.5% -99.9% pure silver). It is traditionally handcrafted by artisans of the Karen Hill Tribe, who have been passing this silversmithing method on for generations in the hills of Northern Thailand, Myanmar and Southern Laos.
Dimensions: Necklace 18 inch, Earrings 2 x 0.75 x 0.75 inch
