THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Ring is size 6-1/4, it measures approximately 5/8" long and 5/8" wide.
This is a very exquisite ring that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. A total of NINE stones are carfully placed in hand cut bezel settings, while mini silver beads and twisted silver can be seen adding style to the ring for a wonderful finish.
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 their appeal and beauty.
