A beautiful silver work with turquoise stones. The total of eleven large turquoise stones (oval cabochon cut) are mounted on these delicate silver filigree which are lightly plated with gold. The gold picks up the light easily, and when it does, it shines and changes the entire look by bringing out the deeper details. Amazing workmanship. The color of the stones is of true turquoise blue without any trace of green or other colors. No damage to the stones; no cracks or chips. The color of 2 stones in necklace seem to be a little lighter than the others. There is a stamped “silver” mark on the silver clasp of the necklace.

The design on this set is auspicious. They are decorated with the good luck charms such as a Chinese characters “shou” (coin-like small design) and bat. Both symbolize happiness and longevity. It most likely is to protect the wearer/owner from evil and lead her to a long, happy and healthy life.

The dimension of the stones: 1.35cm -1.40cm wide x 1.75cm -1.9cm in length. The height also varies.

Necklace: 2.6cm (1 1/8”) wide x 46.2cm (18 ¼”) Long.

Bracelet: 2.65cm (1 1/8”) wide x 17.7cm (7”) long.

Earrings: 2.2cm (7/8”) wide x 2.6cm (1”)
