You will fall in love with this beautiful bracelet! This piece is from the Native American Southwest and is a signed piece. It is hallmarked as handmade and signed J.Tilley, or J. T. Ley, I think. I can't quite make out the signature but this piece is a quality item. The stone is turquoise, set in a large silver disc, surrounded by a silver rope and accented with beads and feathers, all made of silver. The sides of the bracelet are two straight bars, also accented with silver rope design set against three bars which make the cuff.
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.
