An offer like this will not last long! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Raymond Delagrito, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Turquoise stone. ONE stone is carefully set in a hand cut bezel setting, while twisted silver and feathers can be seen accenting for a fantastic finish. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force. The pendant is stamped .925 (sterling) and hallmarked. The necklace is hand strung out of 6-mm Old Pawn silver round beads and real 5-mm Turquoise round beads. Each end of the necklace is completed with a silver cone and bead for an outstanding finish. The cones are stamped sterling.
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.
