This bracelet is a Navajo classic! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Jeff James, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Turquoise stone. The stone is carefully placed in a hand cut bezel setting, while hand cut shadow box settings create fabulous arrowhead designs. Arrows usually signify direction of travel, force, and movement. Stamped patterns and twisted silver accent the bracelet for a charming finish. TWO silver bars make up the cuff and complete the bracelet to perfection! 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 their appeal and beauty.
