There is nothing at all average about this beautiful bracelet! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Emerson Yazzie, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Turquoise stone. The stone is delicately set in a hand cut bezel setting, while twisted silver and hand cut silver work can be seen adding style for a beautiful finish. The cuff is stamped sterling and signed by the artist.
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.
