This magnificent and traditional ring represents the finest of Navajo craftsmanship! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Etta Belin, out of genuine sterling silver along with real Turquoise and Coral stones. The ring has a total of TWO stones that are gently set in hand cut bezel settings in the midst of TWO beautiful feather designs, while mini silver beads and hand crafted silver work can be seen accenting for a beautiful look. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force. The ring is stamped .925 (sterling) and is 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.
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.
