This terrific Necklace showcases 11 distinct types of Turquoise Nuggets, beautifully displayed in 5 luxurious strands. The majority of the Turquoise is from Nevada — including Royston, Pilot Moutain, and Opal Like — presenting characteristic blue and green hues. The blues range from light blue to sky blue to blue-green, while the greens are soft green to rich forest green. There are also Hubei Turquoise Nuggets from China, which are a rich blue with black matrix. The stones range in size from 4mm to 16mm and have varied shapes including chip, disc, ovals, triangles, squares and near-rounds. The varied combination of color, texture, shape and size create a striking visual display. We've paired the Turquoise with 3.5mm Tortoise Shell Heishi, placing discs of Heishi between each of the stones. The golden-brown color provides a neutral backdrop and allows each Turquoise stone to be viewed more completely. The Turquoise is further complemented by moss green and topaz-colored 8mm Czech Luster Glass, and 3, 4, and 6mm Fire Polished Glass in shades of peridot and gray-green. The Czech Glass is semi-translucent and has a gray or brown wash that accents the primary color of the bead. The Fire Polished Glass is faceted, giving off a subtle sparkle. The Turquoise is highlighted by ten 9mm Sterling Silver Ornate Rounds, adding design interest and shine. At the top of the Necklace the 5 strands of Turquoise transition to 5 strands of Tortoise Shell Heishi, streamlining the silhouette and ensuring a comfortable fit. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 164 grams and the 5 strands are each 26-1/4 inches long (when wearing, a vertical hang length of about 10 inches). This is an elegant, classic piece that embodies the style and charm of the American West.
