DESCRIPTION:

This gorgeous necklace set is absolutely distinctive in each and every way! This Native American jewelry set is Navajo hand crafted and strung by artist Gloria Etsitty, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. The necklace is composed of one Naja (the crescent-shaped large center pendant) and double strands of 6-mm silver eccentric beads that are placed at regular intervals among the round side of the center. The Naja is set with TEN stones, while each side of the necklace has TEN stones that are attached to three silver petals which are called squash blossoms. All of the stones are gently set in hand cut bezel settings, while being highlighted by imprinted designs. The necklace is stamped sterling. Entire traditional necklace is flexible "not stiff". The earrings have a total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) and match the necklace beautifully, finishing the set to perfection. The entire set has a total of THIRTY TWO stones.

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.
