Check out the stunning detail in this lovely pair of earrings! The earrings are outstanding pieces of jewelry that are crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise inlay. The inlay is expertly placed on an arrowhead setting, while silver lines and imprinted eagle designs can be seen highlighting for a gorgeous finish. In some beliefs, the eagle is the master of the sky; he is considered to be a carrier of prayers. Many of the Indian Nations admire the eagle for bravery and special connections to the creator. 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 their appeal and beauty.
