This terrific Necklace showcases 3 strands of Turquoise Nuggets, mined in the state of Nevada. The Turquoise Nuggets are an attractive blue-green with black matrix, and are graduated, ranging in dimension from 4-by-4mm to 6-by-14mm. The stones are beautifully formed and polished to a soft luster. We've paired the Nuggets with 6 handcrafted Kingman Turquoise Cubes, approximately 12-by-12mm in dimension. The Kingman Turquoise is color-matched to the Nuggets and has faint traces of black matrix. The Cubes contrast nicely with the rounded Nuggets and add texture and design interest. The Turquoise is complemented by eight 6mm translucent green Fire Polished Glass Rounds, which are faceted and add subtle sparkle. The stones are further highlighted by 11mm and 13mm Stamped Sterling Rounds crafted by Navajo artist Jan Mariano. The Sterling Rounds have detailed stamping and have been meticulously crafted. At the top of the Necklace the 3 strands of Turquoise Nuggets transition to 3 strands of 3mm Olive Shell Heishi, streamlining the silhouette and ensuring wearer comfort. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and a Hammered Sterling Toggle Clasp, and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 131 grams and the 3 Necklace strands range from 22 inches to 23-1/2 inches in length (when wearing, a vertical hang length of about 8-1/2 inches).
