One can't help but appreciate the time and effort that is put into the making of this pendant! This extraordinary pendant is hand crafted out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise and Jet stones. The pendant has a total of TWO stones (one on each side) that are delicately set while stamped patterns and silver work can be seen highlighting for an amazing finish. The pendant 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.
