This is truly an outstanding pair of earrings that will make a great impression! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Camela Yazzie, out of genuine sterling silver, real Turquoise stones, and real Corals. A total of FOUR stones (TWO in each earring) are gently placed in hand cut bezel settings, while being accented with mini silver beads. TWO silver feathers dangle at the end of each earrings for a magnificent finish. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force. The earrings are stamped sterling.
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.
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.
