This is a very gorgeous watch that would make a great gift! This piece of Native American Jewelry is Navajo hand crafted, by artist Rita Montoya, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise stones and Corals. There are a total of FOUR stones (TWO in each watch tip) that are carefully placed in hand cut bezel settings, while hand crafted silverwork creates exquisite Buffalo and scalloped leaf designs. The Buffalo is one of the most important animals to the people of the Plains and it is a great symbol to most Native Americans. The Plains Indians had developed life around the buffalo using it in many different ways. It was used for food, tools, shelter, warmth, and weaponry. To some, the Buffalo represents strength, stability, and prosperity. Twisted silver, mini silver beads, and hand cut designs accent the watch for an extraordinary finish. The watch is stamped .925 (sterling) and is hallmarked.

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 their appeal and beauty.
