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.
Awkward type of clasp makes it impossible to add extenders or magnetic clasps. I am not sure whether I would recommend it or not
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
