This is a very gorgeous ring that would make a great gift! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by the artist Varan, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise inlay. The inlay is carefully set, while thin silver lines can be seen highlighting the adorable turtle for a marvelous finish. In Native American beliefs, the turtle represents strength, female power, and fertility. The turtle is also considered to be able to defy death.
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.
