There is nothing at all average about this beautiful pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Henry Tom, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The earrings have a total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) that are gently set in hand cut shadow box bezel settings, accenting the earrings for a perfect finish. The pair of 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 its appeal and beauty.
