This is a very exquisite cuff bracelet that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Betta Lee, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Kingman Turquoise stone. The stone is delicately set in a hand cut bezel setting, while twisted silver can be seen accenting for a lovely finish. SEVEN silver bars make up the cuff for a dazzling look. The bracelet is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
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.
