This amazing bracelet will make a great impression! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist M. Spencer out of genuine Sterling silver and real Sleeping Beauty Turquoise stones. A total of THREE stones are delicately placed in hand cut bezel settings, while imprinted designs, twisted silver, hand cut work and stamped silver beads can be seen accenting the bracelet for an elegant finish. Three silver bars form the cuff and complete the bracelet to perfection. The bracelet is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
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.
