There is nothing at all average about this beautiful pendant! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Betta Lee, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. A total of TWO stones are gently placed in hand cut bezel settings, while being accented with hand crafted flower and scalloped leaf designs. Mini silver beads can be seen accenting for a remarkable finish. The pendant 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.
