This is a wonderful piece of Navajo artistry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artists Harrison and Betty Begay, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. A total of THREE stones are gently set in hand cut bezel settings while hand crafted silver work creates beautiful scalloped leaf designs. Mini silver beads and twisted silver can be seen accenting the bracelet for a magnificent finish. The bracelet is stamped .925 (sterling) and hallmarked by the artist.
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.
