There is nothing at all average about this beautiful pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Thomas (Tommy) and Rose Singer, out of genuine sterling silver and real Tiger Eye stones. This pair of earrings has a total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) that are delicately placed in hand cut bezel settings, while lovely stamped designs can be seen accenting for a perfect finish. The pair of earrings are stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
Tiger Eye stone contains a golden yellow reflection on a brown ground color. The most important source of tiger eye is South Africa, but it is also found in Australia, India, and California. It is believed to give courage, clear thinking, and protects from negativity.
