The Navajo have used turquoise in art and ritual for thousands of years. It is believed to insure favor with one's yei, a holy being who mediates between the human and supernatural worlds. It can appease the winds and help bring rain. The strands of this handcrafted necklace are meant to symbolize and connect past, present, and future. The teardrop earrings are traced with sterling silver. Please accept slight variations because of the natural materials. Handmade by Navajo artisans in Arizona.
These are a classic design that blends with both Native American and other types of jewelry. The turquoise is not of the highest quality, but since National Geographic vouches for its being a Native American product, we can assume that it is geniune turquoise.
