About the Navajo Kingman Turquoise 1921 Morgan Silver Coin Pendant
There is nothing at all average about this beautiful pendant! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo handcrafted by artist Betta Lee, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Kingman Turquoise stone. The stone is carefully placed in a hand cut bezel setting while mini stamped beads and imprinted silver designs can be seen accenting for a fascinating look. The bottom of the piece is accented by a stunning 1921 Morgan Silver Coin centerpiece dangle that can be seen completing the pendant beautifully. The pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
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.
