This lovely necklace is a work of art and has everything you could possibly want from a piece of Native American jewelry!

The necklace is made up of THREE strands that consist of: 3-mm and 6-mm silver round beads, 8-mm Lapis round beads, 6-mm Coral round beads, 6-mm and 8-mm lapis rondelle beads, Turquoise and Amber free formed beads that have an average measurement of 10-mm, and much more! The THREE strands in this necklace elegantly graduate, while being held together by two 14-mm fancy silver beads, so that the necklace will lay perfectly around your neck. Each end of the necklace is completed with a silver cone and bead for a stunning finish. The cones are stamped sterling.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin, it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
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 their appeal and beauty.
