This incredible turquoise & coral combination showcases a magnificent example of how the finest Native American jewelry is made! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by the artist, B. Begay out of genuine sterling silver, along with a real Turquoise stone and a real Coral. This pair of earrings has a total of FOUR stones (TWO in each earring) that are carefully placed in hand cut bezel settings for a spectacular look. Four silver feathers dangle at the end for a lovely finish. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force. The earrings are stamped .925 (sterling) and hallmarked.
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.
