This is a very exquisite necklace set that must not be overlooked! In this Native American jewelry set, the pendant is Navajo hand crafted by artist Eva Linberg, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Turquoise stone. The stone is carefully placed in a hand cut bezel setting, while beautiful hand crafted silver work creates a Naja design. Stamped patterns accent the pendant for a perfect finish. The pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist. The necklace is hand strung out of genuine 3-mm sterling silver round beads, and an average measurement of 6-mm Turquoise free form beads. Each end of the necklace is completed with a silver cone and bead for a stunning finish. The cones 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.
