This gorgeous watch is absolutely distinctive in each and every way! This watch is a stunning piece of Native American jewelry that is Navajo hand crafted by artist Pearlene Spencer out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The watch has TWO stones that are gently set in hand cut shadow box bezel settings, while placed in lovely bear paw designs. Hand cut bear paw patterns and imprinted designs add style and complete the watch to perfection. 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 watch is stamped sterling and 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.
