THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY

Sterling silver and real Turquoise.

MEASUREMENTS:

Post stud earrings measure approximately 1/2" long and 3/8" at widest point.

DESCRIPTION:

Expect plenty of compliments while wearing this stunning pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni, hand crafted by artist Chris Lasiloo, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise inlay. The inlay is delicately set, creating a gorgeous turtle design, while mini silver beads and thin silver lines can be seen accenting for a magnificent look. In Native American beliefs, the turtle represents strength, female power, and fertility. The turtle is also considered to be able to defy death. 

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.
