There is nothing at all average about this beautiful pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Susan Yazzie, out of genuine sterling silver and man made Turquoise stones. The earrings have a total of FOUR stones (TWO in each earring) that are delicately placed in hand cut bezel settings, while hand cut work and mini silver beads highlight for a fantastic finish. Earrings are 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.
