The bracelet has a total of THREE stones that are delicately set in silver bezel, while silver beads accent the cuff for an outstanding look. Imprinted butterfly and dragonfly designs can be seen among the silver beads for a lovely finish. Dragonflies are connected with water springtime, fertility, renewal, and are considered a messenger.

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.
