  • Impregnated with colorless resin or plastic
  • Proprietary Zachery Method
  • Luster Enhancement

Questions you might have regarding Turquoise:

What are the treatments that QVC accepts?

Why is the Sleeping Beauty Turquoise almost free of matrix or markings in the stone?
For Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, we closely monitor the range of blue color and the level of mottling, matrix and markings we will accept. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise can have all of these markings in the stone, but QVC currently accepts only Sleeping Beauty Turquoise that is free of markings.

What is matrix?
Turquoise deposits usually form in iron-rich host rock which tends to create dark brown or tan markings called matrix.

Where is Turquoise mined?
Turquoise is found in only a few places on earth: dry and barren regions where acidic, copper-rich groundwater seeps downward and reacts with minerals that contain phosphorus and aluminum. Some areas that most of the turquoise has been mined: Arizona, Mexico and China. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is from the Sleeping Beauty mine outside Globe, Arizona. The mine got its name because the mountain where it is mined resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with her arms crossed.

How can we continue to sell Sleeping Beauty Turquoise if the mine is closed?
QVC suppliers have acquired large quantities of rough turquoise when they learned the mine was closing. We have been using these lots of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise for our jewelry.

The Sleeping Beauty mine is currently closed and, at this time, there is no new production of the Sleeping Beauty stones.

Sterling Turquoise Leaf Design Dangle Earrings 4.8 5 34 34
Love I hesitated but ordered. When I got them I put them on immediately and wore them all day with my dress that matched. They are stunning earrings and I am very happy with them. The lever backs are comfortable, the over all length of the earrings are just perfect. I do think they are a bit over priced though. I highly recommend them. Very classy 09-07-13
WOW! JUST PERFECT! I really have enjoyed these earrings. I have short hair and don't like earrings that are too long. These are just perfect and are so comfortable. I really appreciate the omega back. I wish more designers used these. The color of these stones is also really nice. 08-07-13
Love these earrings! These earrings are beautiful. I love the design. They are large and different with the leaf shape design going down the earlobe and a single stone that dangles at the end. Thank you for the closure. It is comfortable, easy to put on and off and holds the earring perfectly in place.. I bought the leaf design ring from you and the earrings match it beautifully. Love to wear both pieces together. I receive so many compliments. Thank you for your great dsigns and affordable prices QVC. 08-05-13
Stunning These earrings are first quality like much of the sterling silver made in Thailand. Glad I was able to pick these up on Gem Day at the sale price and on value pay. Please keep more jewelry like this coming. 07-27-13
HEAVY AND UNCOMFORTABLE These earrings are very pretty indeed, but despite the fact all the hosts that showed them said they were not heavy they are a bit. Also this type of closure hurt my ears. I don't consider my lobes to be bigger then normal but for some reason after only 15 minutes of wear I had to take them off. They hurt..Such a shame they are a good looking pair of earrings and maybe they will fit others better.. Sorry to have to send them back. 07-25-13
Nice Nice Nice!!! These earrings are made very well and are very comfortable to wear; not heavy at all. The turquoise is a very nice blue, with just a little bit of matrix on some of the stones. 07-15-13
Very pretty These earrings are really nice. The turquoise is a vivid blue and the design is very well done. They are "a keeper". 06-07-13
Gorgeous!! I have been wanting these for a long time. I was worried that they would be too long for me or would be heavy. Not at all. These are perfect. The only thing is the post is thicker than most, but I was able to get it into my ear. The first day I wore them, I was complimented many times by strangers who stopped me & then asked where I got them. Don't hesitate to get these if you are thinking about it!! 05-19-13
one of my best purchases I have been looking at these earrings for a long time......decided it was time to buy myself something....love them.......love QVC...... 05-01-13
Just What I Wanted I am thrilled that I found these earrings. I was just roaming around the Q, just looking for turquoise, perhaps, since I have so much of it and...WOW...these earrings blew me away. I ordered them immediately then saw that there was a matching ring so ordered that too. These earrings are not heavy, just substantial and may I say...beautiful. Drop dead beautiful!!! I am in love with them. By all means buy them if they are still available you certainly will NOT be sorry. I LOVE them. 04-27-13
Beautiful! These earrings are awesome. Comfortable yet noticeable. I have lived in AZ and traveled the world for my job and these compare with any of the jewelry I have seen. They will be my "go to" earrings for spring and summer. I am planning my wardrobe around them for an upcoming trip to New Zealand. 03-28-13
Another color????? These are so wonderful could they be done in other colors and gemstones???? Please! 03-26-13
