You will absolutely fall in love with this stunning pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry was Navajo hand crafted by artist Lorena Brown, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise stones and Corals. A total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) are delicately placed in hand cut bezel settings, while twisted silver can be seen highlighting the stones, along with hand crafted silver work creating TWO magnificent silver feathers that dangle at the end of each earring for a breathtaking finish. The earrings are stamped sterling and hallmarked. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
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.
