This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Clem Nalwood, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. FIVE of the links are made up of hand crafted silver work, while the centerpiece has SIX stones that are delicately placed in hand cut bezel settings. Hand cut patterns, imprinted deigns, and mini silver beads can be seen accenting each link for a marvelous look. The necklace is stamped sterling and hallmarked. The earrings have a total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) that are gently set in hand cut bezel settings, and match the necklace perfectly. The entire set has a total of EIGHT stones.
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.
