En Tribe Neck Cuff in Sterling Silver & Turquoise
Inspired by tribal adornment of bold symbolic chest and neck pieces, two inward facing inlayed turquoise arrows rest on the collar bones while joined by a sterling silver wire, contouring around the neck. The Native American belief is that having an arrow pointing to the left wards off evil, and to the right, promotes protection of self.
Turquoise, stone of the sky, is considered by Native Americans to be protective and a bestower of goodness, and has been valued for its beauty and spiritual qualities for thousands of years. Natural American turquoise varies in hue from a brilliant bright blue to pale, serene aqua and can contain matrixed inclusions of earthy stone or pyrite in black and brown speckles. Long prized for its strength in aligning the chakras, turquoise can aid in furthering peace of mind and enhancing a meditative state.
