This magnificent and traditional bracelet represents the finest of Navajo craftsmanship! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Mary Ann Spencer, out of genuine sterling silver and a real White Buffalo Turquoise stone. The stone is delicately placed in a hand cut bezel, while twisted silver, silver beads, stamped designs, and hand cut silver work can be seen accenting for a perfect 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.
