There is nothing at all average about this beautiful bracelet!

A total of ONE Turquoise stone is carefully placed in a hand cut bezel setting, while being accented by hand twisted silver work.

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 its appeal and beauty.
