An offer like this will not last long! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Esther White, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. This pair of earrings has a total of FOUR stones (TWO in each earring) that are gently set in hand cut shadow box bezel settings, while hand cut silver work creates FOUR marvelous bear paw designs for an adorable finish. In Native American beliefs, the bear paw is usually considered a way to call for the power of the animal spirit, or as an indication of the presence of the spirit. It is a symbol that represents inner strength.
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.
