This is a wonderful piece of Navajo artistry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted, by artist Ray Jack, out of genuine sterling silver and a real White Buffalo Turquoise stone. The stone is carefully set in a hand cut bezel setting, while stamped patterns highlight the ring for a delightful 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 its appeal and beauty.
