This impressive Necklace showcases 3 strands of Mixed Turquoise, in vibrant hues of blue and blue green. The Turquoise is largely from Nevada and Arizona — including Kingman, Royston and Pilot Mountain — and includes 15 individual cuts and sizes, producing wonderful texture and visual appeal. The design displays 6 types of Heishi, 4 types of Nuggets, 2 types of Rounds, Round Ovals, Round Disc, and Side-Drilled Nuggets. The design also features interwoven strands, where 2 of the 3 strands are channeled through Sterling Rondelles at 2 successive places and then merged back together again. At the center of each Necklace Strand is a Vintage Turquoise and Sterling Silver Charm, each one beautifully crafted. The top Charm displays a deep blue Turquoise Oval set in a raised Sterling Bezel on Sterling Plate with a semi-circle Sterling Flourish at the bottom. The middle Charm is a noble Sterling Silver Thunderbird, with etched Feathers and a green Turquoise center stone. The bottom Charm features a pale blue Turquoise teardrop-shaped stone set in a raised Sterling Bezel on Oxidized Sterling Silver Plate. The 3 charms add great character and style. The Turquoise is further complemented by six 11mm Hill Tribe Silver Stamped Rondelles, and eight 7mm Sterling Silver Rondelles stamped with concentric circles. The Turquoise shines beautifully against the rich Turquoise hues. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and a handcrafted Hammered Sterling Toggle Clasp, and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 142 grams and the 3 Strands are 22-1/2, 25 and 28 inches long (when wearing, a vertical hang length of about 10-1/2 inches).
