African turquoise XL oval double dangle chain feather earrings ethnic
0 x 25 mm x 6mm thick (1-1/4 x 1 x 1/4") African turquoise ovals top these long, earthy, tribal feather earrings. Ovals are flat on each side with rounded edges. They have mineral inclusions in black and some brown that form really neat patterns.
Each earring consists of two groups of natural feathers hanging from the gemstone. The back feathers dangle from a 1" (25mm) plated chain to provide a lovely fluid movement when you wear them. Longer chains up to 3" (75mm) are the same price -- just ask!
Feathers included may be:
~Chinchilla hackle -- long & skinny with raccoon-tail stripes. Caramel & cream, or gray-brown w. tan.
~Furnace hackle -- skinny, short or medium length. Auburn, sometimes with a vertical stripe of charcoal brown.
~Rooster coque shlappen -- long or extra-long ranging from bronze to iridescent forest green.
~Peacock plumage -- deep iridescent emerald green or brilliant capri blue-teal. Please note: peacock plumage is not from the tail and doesn't contain the eye.
~Guinea hen -- short, black with white spots
~Almond pheasant -- short, red-brown with cream and black patterns.
