This is a very gorgeous pair of earrings that would make a great gift! This piece of Native American jewelry was Navajo hand crafted by artist Devina Benally, out of genuine sterling silver and man made Turquoise stones. A total of THIRTY stones (FIFTEEN in each earring) are delicately placed in hand cut bezel settings, while being highlighted by twisted silver and mini silver beads for a lovely look. The earrings are 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.
