Sterling silver and real Turquoise.
Ring is size 7, it measures approximately 1/2" long and 3/4" wide.
This is a very exquisite ring that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Lee Shorty. The stone is carefully set in a hand cut bezel setting, while twisted silver, mini silver beads, and hand crafted silver work create a unqiue design for an adorable finish. The ring is stamped .925 (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.
