This is a very gorgeous pair of earrings that would make a great gift! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Kal Kallestewa, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise inlay. The inlay is gently set, creating a lovely tear drop shape while thin silver lines can be seen accenting for an adorable finish. The earrings are stamped sterling, Zuni, and hallmarked.
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.
