exclusive! Jay King Green Malachite Turtle Sterling Silver Earrings
Overview & Details
Sea turtles start their lives as hatchlings on the beach and must survive a gauntlet of waves, birds and other predators in their journey to adulthood. In many ways, the path of this endangered species is a fitting metaphor for life. Handcrafted of polished green malachite and sterling silver, these pretty drop earrings are a lovely jewelry accessory, but also a beautiful reminder to never give up on your dreams.
- Sterling silver earrings have turtle-shaped drops comprised of large oval malachite in center, with 6 smaller pieces extending from center

Amazing Malachite Turtles
The malachite in both these earrings and the matching turtle pendant I purchased was very pretty with nice banding and rich green color. The earrings aren't too heavy for me, but I can only manage about 8 hours in them. I was surprised they were so large! I think they could have been half the size and they could have still shown up nicely and been much more comfortable. But they are very beautiful and a must have for a malachite or turtle collector.ellyguster, TNWas this review helpful? 1 out of 1 found this review helpful
