This is a wonderful piece of Navajo artistry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Donna Lasiloo, out of genuine sterling silver along with real Turquoise and Jet inlay. The inlay is gently set, creating an exquisite 3-D flower design while twisted silver can be seen highlighting the earrings for a fantastic finish. The earrings are stamped sterling 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.
