DESCRIPTION

This lovely pair of earrings will definitely attract plenty of attention! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Theresa Joe, out of genuine sterling silver and man made multicolor inlay. The inlay consists of: Turquoise, Onyx, Coral, and Howlite. The inlay is delicately set, while imprinted patterns can be seen accenting for a magnificent finish. The 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.

Howlite is named after its discoverer Henry How. Howlite is known for its great final polish and rich luster. Howlite is often mistaken for "white buffalo" or "white turquoise" due to the similarity of appearance. Howlite is a combination of pure white with black veins; highlighting the beauty and balance of opposites. Howlite has high calcium content for strong healthy bones and teeth. It would make a wonderful gift for a pregnant or nursing mother.
