Sterling silver and real Royston Turquoise.
The inner bracelet circumference measures approximately 5-1/2", plus a 1-1/8" opening, and is 1-3/8" at widest point.
This is a very exquisite bracelet that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Mary Ann Spencer, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Royston Turquoise stone. The stone is gently placed in a hand cut bezel setting, while mini silver beads, twisted silver, and hand cut silver work add style to the bracelet for an amazing finish. The bracelet is stamped 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.
