Sterling Silver, real Turquoise and Amber.
The necklace measures 20-1/2".
There is nothing at all average about this beautiful necklace! This necklace is hand strung bead by bead out of real Turquoise along with an Amber centerpiece. The necklace is made up of TWO strands that consist of: 3-mm silver round beads, 8-mm Turquoise round beads, and a 50-mm Amber centerpiece. The two strands in this necklace elegantly graduate, while being held together by the 50-mm Amber centerpiece so that the necklace will lay perfectly around your neck. Inside the Amber bead is an encapsulated Bumblebee. Each end of the necklace is completed with a silver cone for an elegant finish. The cones are stamped sterling.
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.
Amber is known to be very protective, it also calm nervousness, relieves depression, spiritualizes the mind, and draws diseases and negativity out of the body. Even though amber is sometimes called a stone, it is not, it is actually fossil resin.
