THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Pin pendant measures approximately 1" long and 1" at widest point.
This is a very exquisite pin pendant that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand made out of genuine sterling silver and man made Turquoise stones. A total of SIXTEEN stones are carefully set in hand cut bezel settings, while silver beads and twisted silver can be seen accenting the pin pendant for a perfect finish. The pin 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.
