The stone is carefully placed in a hand cut bezel setting at the center of the bracelet while the second layer forms gorgeous Eagle and stamped designs completing the bracelet to perfection! In Native American beliefs, the eagle is the master of the sky; he is considered to be a carrier of prayers.

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.
12KGF is as good as gold. The color will never fade, change, or wear off. It is 12K gold on top of brass and other metals, which create a gold tone with a finish all the way through. 12KGF behaves the same way as gold.
