This is a very exquisite pair of earrings that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Sharon McCarthy, out of genuine sterling silver and Turquoise stones. This pair of earrings has a total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) that are carefully placed in a hand cut bezel setting, while being accented by twisted silver for a wonderful finish. The earrings are stamped sterling.
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.
