There is nothing at all average about this beautiful pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry was Zuni hand crafted by artist Evelyn Mahkee, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise inlay. The inlay is gently set, creating a lovely tear drop shape. Thin silver lines accent the earrings for an adorable finish. The earrings are signed 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.
