Sterling silver and real Turquoise.
The inner bracelet circumference measures approximately 5-1/8", plus a 1-1/4" opening, and 1-1/4" at widest point.
This is a very exquisite bracelet that must not be overlooked! The piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo, hand crafted by Andrew Vandever out of genuine sterling silver and a real Turquoise stone. The stone is carefully placed in a hand cut bezel, while twisted silver, silver beads, and leaf designs create a beautiful finish. This bracelet is hallmarked by the artist.
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.
