THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver, Turquoise, Apple Coral, and Opal.
Pendant measures approximately 1-3/4" long (including bail) and 1-1/8" at widest point.
This is a very exquisite pendant that must not be overlooked! The pendant is crafted out of genuine sterling silver and Multicolor inlay. The inlay consists of: real Turquoise, Apple Coral, and man made Opal. The pendant is reversible, it can be worn on either side, one side being Turquoise and Opal and the other side being Apple Coral and Opal (it's like having two pendants in one). The inlay is carefully set, while creating a splendid design. Thin silver lines can be seen accenting in between the inlay adding style. Twisted silver can be seen accenting the pendant for a perfect finish. 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.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin, it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
