Description

Mother of Pearl Necklace and Earring Jewelry Set or Naja Jewelry Set. The cabochons are set on Sterling Silver, 925. The symbol Naja hangs at the bottom of the sterling silver chain (resembles an inverted crescent moon). It has the Mother of Pearl at the center of the Naja and the legs are hand stamped with three small cuts on each leg. The earrings are also sterling silver and designed to match the Naja pendant. While stories and meanings change, this symbol seems to have stuck and now seen as a symbol to ward off the evil eye. See below for the meaning of the Symbol Naja then check out the Dimensions of this jewelry set.

Naja meaning:

With probable Paleolithic origins, the inverted crescent form (called Naja by the Navajo) has represented the Phoenician goddess of fertility, Astarte, and is mentioned in the Book of Judges among the “ornaments on camels’ necks.” The Moors – who dominated Spain for eight centuries – adopted the crescent as a horse’s bridle ornament, to protect the horse and rider from “the evil eye”. The Spanish then brought the idea to the Americas in the late 16th century.

The Navajo, whether directly from the Spanish, or indirectly through the influence of the Plains Indians, adopted the crescent form as a horse headstall (the front-center band of the bridle). Later it became the crowning achievement of their squash-blossom necklaces, hanging symmetrically at the center of the necklace when worn. Although the Navajo claim that the Naja has no precise symbolic or spiritual significance, it is ubiquitous in their culture and held in high esteem.

Sterling Silver items can be cleaned when signs of tarnishing start to show. Carefully clean bracelets, rings, or earrings with a soft cloth dipped in Sterling Silver cleaner. Do not immerse in tarnish removers if a turquoise or natural stone is on your jewelry item. This may change the color of your stone or possibly damage it chemically.
