This is a wonderful piece of Navajo artistry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Thomas Yazzie, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise stones, and Purple & Orange Oyster Shells. A total of SEVEN stones are delicately set in hand cut bezel settings, while silver beads highlight in between for a delightful finish. The bracelet is stamped sterling and hallmarked 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.
