This magnificent and traditional key chain represents the finest of Navajo craftsmanship! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist B. Tom, out of genuine sterling silver, 12 Karat Gold Filled, along with a real Coral. The stone is carefully set in hand cut bezel, while forming the eye of an eagle. 12 Karat Gold Filled portrays the beak of the eagle and adds a stylish look to the piece. In Native American beliefs, the eagle is the master of the sky; he is considered to be a carrier of prayers. Many of the Indian Nations admire the eagle for bravery and special connections to the creator. The key chain is hallmarked.
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.
12KGF is as good as gold; it will never fade, change, or wear off color. It is 12K gold on top of brass and other metals, which create a gold tone with a finish all the way through, same behavior as gold.
