Paula says - "You are buying the two watch tips shown here. Beautiful lapis inlay with sterling silver channels. Excellent workmanship!"
"You are buying two watch tips. The term Watch Tips refers to the two Native American made decorative panels that connect the timepiece to the expansion band.
"We include at no extra charge an expansion band and the new timepiece pictured here. (None of these are sterling silver nor Native American made). The timepiece will be running when it leaves here. We are selling you the tips only - the timepiece and band are included free of charge, we make no warranty on the timepiece or band. With that said, I have never had one of these watches fail me, but then I don't wear my watch in the shower or while doing dishes."
Inlaid watch tips are 1 1/8" x 1/2".
Lazuli is a deep blue stone often with gold flecking that twinkles like stars.
The name lapis lazuli is a combination of the Latin word lapis ("stone")
and the Arabian name azul, meaning "blue."
Many ancient cultures believed that lapis lazuli contained magical powers. In the Middle Ages, monks powdered the stone and kneaded it into dough with beeswax, resin and linseed oil, for use in illuminated manuscripts. Today, people around the world consider lapis lazuli to be a stone of truth and friendship. It is reputed to bring about harmony in relationships and to cleanse the mental body while releasing old karmic patterns. Read about stones
