We bring to you this adorable ring! This piece of Native American jewelry is hand crafted out of genuine sterling silver, Blue Opal, and Coral inlay. The inlay is delicately placed with real turquoise stones and ONE Coral stone at the center to form a turtle design. In Native American beliefs, the turtle represents strength, female power, and fertility. The turtle is also considered to be able to defy death.
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.
Most people know Opal for its distinctive play of color, it is a semi-transparent solidified mineral composed of silicon and water, and it gets its name from the Latin word "Oplus" meaning precious stone. Opal is the birthstone for October. It is believed to release self-consciousness allowing spontaneous action, and awakens psychic and mystical qualities.
