This is truly an outstanding pendant that will make a great impression! This pendant is a piece of jewelry that is overlay crafted out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The pendant has a total of EIGHT needlepoint stones that are carefully placed in a silver bezel, while mini silver beads, twisted silver, and a beautiful overlaid design completes the pendant beautifully. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One to form the foundation, while the second layer is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pendant the second layer forms a lovely traditional pattern that adds style to the piece. 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.
