This is truly an outstanding pair of earrings that will make a great impression! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Lee Shorty, out of genuine sterling silver and real Corals. A total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) are gently placed in hand cut bezel settings, while being accented with hand cut silver work that create dazzling silver feathers and eagle designs for a beautiful and traditional look. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force. In Native American beliefs, the eagle is the master of the sky; he is considered to be a carrier of prayers. Many of the Indian Nations admire the eagle for bravery and special connections to the creator. The earrings are stamped .925 (sterling) and are hallmarked.
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.
