This engaging Necklace showcases a Kingman Turquoise and Sterling Silver Pendant handcrafted by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. Kingman Turquoise — from the active mine in Kingman, Arizona — is found in three primary colors: medium-blue, blue-green, and striking deep blue. Our stone is the third category; a rich, vivid blue with silver matrix. The cabochon is rectangular in shape, and set in a Sawtooth Sterling Silver Bezel on Sterling Silver Plate that mirrors the shape of the stone. The Pendant hangs from a custom v-shaped Sterling Silver Bail and is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling." We've paired the Turquoise & Sterling Pendant with 3 Strands of blue Nevada Turquoise Nuggets, color-matched to the Kingman stone. The Nuggets are about 8-by-12mm in dimension, and are arranged along strands of 3mm Olive Shell Heishi. The Shell Heishi provides a foundation for the Turquoise, while keeping the design upbeat and relevant. The Turquoise is further complemented by 5mm and 8mm Smoky Quartz Rounds, which are translucent and add a subtle sparkle. The stones are highlighted by six 8mm Sterling Silver Bicones, which add structure and shine. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Wavy Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 62 grams and is 20-1/2 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 1-7/8 inches by 1 inch including the 1/2-inch Bail.
