This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Samson Edsitty, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Sonoran Gold Turquoise stone. The stone is gently placed in a hand cut bezel setting, while hand cut silver work, twisted silver, and silver beads can be seen adding style for a marvelouis look. The bracelet is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
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.
