The beautiful features in this double bear paw ring will make you appreciate Native American art! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Jerry Thompson, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. There are a total of TWO stones, each gently set in hand cut shadow box bezel settings, while placed in a gorgeous double bear paw design. Hand cut bear paw patterns add style and complete the ring perfectly. In Native American beliefs, the bear paw is usually considered a way to call for the power of the animal spirit, or as an indication of the presence of the spirit. It is a symbol that represents inner strength. The ring 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 its appeal and beauty.
