Turtle Earrings are adorned with amethyst beads above hand painted turtle charms. The charms are intricately detailed gold plated pewter turtles with decorative hand painted purple shells. The earwires are gold filled hooks.
If you a see a turtle near a pond, river or sea, stop to say hi, but it's probably best to not bother it. Trying to care for one at home is very tedious work and requires special tanks and equipment. So better to leave these beautiful creatures alone and perhaps contribute to a turtle conservation center. Turtles are cold blooded reptiles, eat insects, small fish and plants. Turtles are an ancient creature and have been around for about 200 million years.
Fun Fact: A group of turtles is called a bale. It's not common to see more than one turtle at a time, but if you do you know what to call them.
Earring Length: 1-3/4" or 45mm
