This magnificent and traditional ring represents the finest of Navajo craftsmanship! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Jeanette Saunders, out of genuine sterling silver, along with a real Turquoise and Coral. A total of TWO stones are gently placed in hand cut bezel settings, while being accented with mini silver beads, hand crafted leaf designs, and a silver Eagle for a fantastic finish. In Native American beliefs, the eagle is the master of the sky; he is considered to be a carrier of prayers. Many of the Indian Nations admire the eagle for bravery and special connections to the creator. The ring is stamped .925 (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.
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.
