Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is among the most prized types of turquoise in the world for its vivid, perfect shade of bright blue. Upon its initial mining in the Sleeping Beauty mountain range in Arizona, it became highly sought after for both its color and exceptional lack of veining. Long before the mine's closure in 2012, which skyrocketed the price and value of the stone, it was coveted by fine jewelers around the world. In these stunning earrings from the 1950s, the fine turquoise is accentuated by glittering full cut diamonds, adding elegance to their playful color and design. They weigh around a carat in total and boast near colorless G-H color grades and VS clarity grades. The high-end 14k clip-on backs indicate fine craftsmanship and are suitable for non-pierced ears. We are happy to add posts for pierced ears, if desired. They measure about 1 inch by just over 3/4 inch.
