DESCRIPTION:

Take advantage of the great price on this amazing watch! This piece of Native American jewelry is Zuni hand crafted by artist Effie Calavaza, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise stones, and real Corals. The watch has a total of TEN stones, SIX of which are delicately placed in hand cut bezel settings in the midst of TWO gorgeous silver snake designs, while the other FOUR stones are inlaid and create the snakes' eyes. Imprinted designs and silver beads can be seen accenting the snake designs for a remarkable finish. The snake is found in many healing and fertility rituals. It is also connected with lightning, speed, and being able to move undetected. The watch tips are stamped Zuni and hallmarked by the artist.

We provide you with a complementary watch face.


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 their appeal and beauty.

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. 

Well-known artist Effie Calavaza is from the Zuni Tribe, which is located in New Mexico. Effie was taught by her husband Juan Calavaza and began silver work in 1956. She combined her husband's work and her designs to create some of the most beautiful and most distinctive Native American art! Her sand casting and hand done work are among the best and most recognized jewelry in the southwest. Her jewelry is stamped with the family hallmark EFFIE C. ZUNI, which is used by Effie and her three daughters Georgiana Yatsattie, Gloria Jean Garcia, and Susie Calavaza. Effie's daughters assist her in the jewelry making (she shared her spouse's mark, JUAN C. ZUNI, until his death ca. 1970). To this day Effie's work is collected throughout the world and she continues making jewelry because she enjoys it!

    The tigers eye turtle earrings are exactly as I expected. They are a Christmas present for my daughter who loves tigers eye jewelry and I'm sure she will be delighted with them.

    Super service
    Posted by Sandra J. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    The watch I ordered arrived with one side of band not attached and way too large [seems I measured wrong]. I called to see what could be done to rectify problems and they were very helpful and said to sent back immediately and they would attach band and size for my wrist. I sent off the next day and within just a couple of days I had watch back with new pin for band attachment an resized free of charge with the exception of postage to send back for corrections.

    Great company and seller!
    Posted by Connie N. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I would give them 100 if I could. I have ordered pottery and jewelry from them and both were extraordinary. Their products are excellent quality and the service was over the top. They keep in contact with buyers to make sure the transaction is complete and satisfactory! Rest assured that your purchase will be top quality and shipped intact. I will be a lifelong customer!
