You will absolutely fall in love with this stunning pair of hook earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Sylvia Chee, out of authentic sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. There are a total of TWO stones (one in each earring) that are delicately placed in handcut bezel settings, hanging gently in the middle of a beautifully crafted diamond shape made of twisted sterling silver for an elegant look.
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.
