This is a wonderful piece of Navajo artistry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand strung out of genuine sterling silver and real multicolor beads. The necklace is made up of THREE strands that consist of: 6-mm Purple Oyster Shell rondelle beads, 6-mm Turquoise round beads, 6-mm Jasper round beads, 5-mm Coral round beads, and 5-mm Silver round beads. Each end of the necklace is completed with a silver cone for a perfect look. The cones are stamped sterling.
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.
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.
