This is a very gorgeous pendant that would make a great gift! The pendant is a gorgeous piece of jewelry that is crafted out of genuine sterling silver, along with a real Turquoise stone and real Turquoise inlay. The pendant has one stone that is delicately set in silver bezel while being accented by stunning overlaid designs. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second layer is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pendant, the second layer forms lovely water waves and a variety of other designs. A marvelous inlaid Horse design can be seen highlighting and completing the pendant beautifully. In some beliefs, the water waves design represents continuous life. 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.
