THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Pendant measures just over 1-1/2" long including bail and approximately 3/4" at widest point.
What an amazing pendant! The pendant is hand made out of genuine sterling silver and a man made Turquoise stone. The stone is delicately set in a plain silver bezel setting, while creating a gorgeous tear drop design. The stone is a stunning shade of sky blue that gives the pendant a stylish look. A beautiful silver base can be seen surrounding the stone and creating a wonderful 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.
