This combination of turquoise and coral truly showcases a magnificent example of how the finest Native American jewelry is made! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Freda Martinez, out of genuine sterling silver, a real Turquoise stone, and a real Coral. A total of TWO stones are gently placed in hand cut bezel settings, while twisted silver, mini silver beads, and hand crafted silver work can be seen highlighting for a pleasant finish. The ring is 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 its appeal and beauty.
