December Birthstone Earrings set with Turquoise

December birthstone earrings can be set with raw or carved Turquoise gemstones. A pair of raw or rough gemstones set in earrings will unlikely be identical in shape but carved and polished stones can be shaped to be as similar as possible. Many designers now used small stones of crushed Turquoise that have been bonded together with molten metals, such as copper, which gives the attractive matrix pattern and replicates how Turquoise occurs naturally.

The following designers use natural Turquoise bonded with copper in their stunning December birthday earrings:

Buying Jewelry Tip

The birthstone color for December is blue so you may also find 'December' jewelry made with blue colored glass or synthetic beads and not with genuine gemstones.


Always check jewelry descriptions carefully so that you are aware whether the piece contains real gemstones or synthetic stones.

'Turquoise' may just refer to the color of the jewelry and not necessarily the Turquoise gemstone.


Real gemstones will have flaws and impurities and synthetic stones will be flawless and clear. All are equally beautiful and it just depends what you prefer.
