This gorgeous bracelet is absolutely distinctive in each and every way! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted by artist Richard Singer, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Turquoise stone. The stone is carefully placed in hand cut bezel settings for a lovely finish. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this bracelet, the second layer forms amazing border patterns, along with beautiful Horse and landscape designs for a magnificent look. The bracelet is stamped .925 (sterling) and is hallmarked by 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.
