This is truly an outstanding bracelet that will make a great impression! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Max C., out of genuine sterling silver, a real Turquoise stone and a real Coral. The bracelet has a total of TWO stones that are carefully placed in hand cut bezel, while being accented by silver beads, twisted silver, along with hand cut leaf and flower work for a delightful finish. TWO silver bars create the cuff, completing the bracelet perfectly. 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 their appeal and beauty.
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.
