This magnificent and traditional necklace represents the finest of Navajo craftsmanship! This peice of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Lee Shorty, out of genuine sterling silver and real Turquoise stones. FOUR of the links are made up of hand crafted silver, while the other THREE each have ONE stone that is carefully set in a hand cut bezel setting. Mini silver beads, twisted silver, and hand cut silver work can be seen adding style for a phenomenal look. The necklace is stamped .925 (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.
