This pendant is a true treasure! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Kenneth Jones, out of genuine sterling silver, a real Coral, along with a real Turquoise stone. The pendant has a total of TWO stones that are delicately placed in hand cut bezel settings, while mini silver beads, hand cut silver work, and an imprinted leaf design can be seen accenting for a fabulous look. The pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of their appeal and beauty.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
