This bracelet is a Navajo classic! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Raymond Yazzie, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. There are a total of SEVEN stones that are carefully placed in hand cut bezel settings, while being accented with twisted silver and mini stamped silver beads for an elegant look. THREE twisted silver bars create the cuff, completing the bracelet perfectly. The bracelet is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
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.
