If you are looking for elegance and beauty, you have found it! This piece of jewelry is crafted out of genuine sterling silver, along with a real Turquoise stone and a real Coral. The bracelet has a total of TWO stones that are gently placed in silver bezel, while being accented by silver beads, twisted silver, cut through leaf work, and imprinted designs for an elegant finish. TWO silver bars create the cuff, completing the bracelet perfectly. The bracelet is 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.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin, it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
