THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Turquoise.
Ring is size 7-3/4, it measures approximately 1/4" long and 1/2" wide.
This is a very exquisite ring that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Ernest Pewanika, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise Inlay. The inlay is carefully set in hand cut bezel, while mini silver beads can be seen accenting the ring for a gorgeous finish.
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.
