Excellent craftsmanship is shown throughout this amazing necklace set! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Clem Nalwood, out of genuine sterling silver and real Corals. TWO of the links are made up silver beads, while the other SIX each have ONE stone that is gently placed in a hand cut bezel setting. Hand crafted silver work and mini silver beads can be seen highlighting each link for a phenomenal finish. The necklace is stamped Navajo, sterling, and hallmarked. The earrings have a total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) that are carefully placed in hand cut bezel settings, and match the necklace perfectly. The entire set has a total of EIGHT stones.
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.
