18 carats of beautiful authentic Dry Creek turquoise incorporated into our "Keep It On The Lockdown" earrings designed by Nevada Watt. The unique design has its very own meaning to make it just a little more special. "Even when the pressure is on, you have to keep your mind straight and your emotions in check! Win your inner battle first and then extrude love."
Dry Creek Turquoise comes from a small Turquoise mine outside of Austin, Nevada in Lander County. It is known for its pale creamy blue color and golden to chocolate brown matrix. Because of the stones lightness in color and hardness in strength, it is a very valuable turquoise.
