This is a wonderful piece of Navajo artistry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Daniel Benally, out of genuine sterling silver and a real White Buffalo Turquoise stone. The stone is carefully placed in a hand cut bezel setting, while twisted silver, hand cut silver work, along with stamped and silver beads can be seen accenting for a remarkable look. THREE silver bars make up the cuff for a phenomenal finish. The bracelet is 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.
