This is a very exquisite pair of earrings that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry was Navajo hand crafted by artist Freida Martinez, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. A total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) are delicately placed in hand cut bezel settings, while twisted silver and hand cut silver work highlight for a remarkable finish. The earrings are stamped sterling.
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.
