Sterling silver and real Turquoise. 

MEASUREMENTS:

Pendant measures approximately 1-1/4" long (including bail) and 7/8" at widest point.

DESCRIPTION:

This is a very exquisite pendant that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist R.B. Laate, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. A total of SIXTEEN stones are carefully placed in hand cut bezel settings creating a beautiful heart shape, while mini silver beads accent the pendant for a lovely finish. The pendant is signed Zuni and 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.

    Posted by Judith E. | Reviewing TurquoiseJewelry.com | Posted on
    The pendant I purchased is really beautiful. The color of the turquoise stones is a light blue and the silver work is really well crafted.
