This is a wonderful piece of Navajo artistry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted, out of genuine sterling silver, along with man made Blue and White Opal stones. A total of SIX stones (THREE in each earring) are gently placed in hand cut teardrop bezel settings, while mini silver beads accent in between for a charming finish.
Most people know Opal for its distinctive play of color, it is a semi-transparent solidified mineral composed of silicon and water, and it gets its name from the Latin word "Oplus" meaning precious stone. Opal is birthstone of October. It is believed to release self-consciousness allowing spontaneous action, and awakens psychic and mystical qualities.
