Turquoise has been in use for thousands of years, and is one of the oldest stones to be made into jewelry. It is also one of the recognized birthstones for those born in December (along with zircon, tanzanite and blue topaz).
Are you wondering about the "meaning" of turquoise? Turquoise is said to be a "purification" stone and is often described as "powerful" - it may dispel negative energies and protect you from negative influences. In addition to all that, this beautiful December birthstone is said to promote inner relaxation and calm; it might even make your day less stressful!
If you are looking for a gift for your friend with a December birthday, have a look at these turquoise gemstone earrings!
The fleur de lis is a symbol that is deeply ingrained in Louisiana's history and I use it in many of my handmade jewelry designs, including the fleur de lis necklace, fleur de lis bracelet and fleur de lis earrings pictured above. Many people are interested in the fleur de lis meaning so I wanted to give you a little information about this beautiful and ancient symbol that is seen on the Louisiana state flag and in architecture across the state.
The fleur de lis is a considered a "stylized" lily (in French, fleur means "flower", and lis means "lily") that has been used since ancient times in association with French royalty and in religious symbolism.
The fleur de lis symbol has been regarded as a sign of purity since antiquity. In fact, the Catholic Church has used the fleur-de-lis emblem both as a symbol of the Holy Trinity as well as an emblem of the Virgin Mary.
So there you have it! Hopefully now you know a little more about this beautiful symbol than you knew before!
These are some of the most popular dangle earrings of all time for my shop. Everyone loves sterling silver, so that is part of the charm but I think the rest of the story is in the "flexibility" of these silver earrings - they move with you and are just so much fun to wear because of that!
These earrings would make a great gift for mom (a Mother's Day gift) - you can choose silver, silver and gold or silver and copper.

Silver "elliptical" earrings and a little bit of information about how they were made. Starting with plain round silver wire, I always start with a circle then work them into the final shape.
Copper is such a great warm metal for fall and winter and pearl jewelry is always classic. The combination of silver and copper provide just a touch of the mixed metal look that is so versatile & popular. Put it on & go - what could be simpler than that?
Happy first day of fall!
