Turtles are symbols of Earth and Water, commonly seen in Pre-Columbian Coclé culture art from Central America. For their long life span, they were used in creation stories of the Earth, symbolizing good health and a long life. Turtles and amulets were worn for protection facing hostile forces, or as offerings to the gods.

These earrings are exactly what I was looking for! I have Queen Puabi's replica necklace from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and they are a perfect match! The earrings are well made and comfortable, and look contemporary or ancient. Very versatile!

 I had purchased the same scarab earrings from a museum shop after visiting an Egyptian special exhibit and loved them. I lost one and was so thrilled to be able to find the same earrings again to replace it. They are exactly what I hoped they would be.
