This terrific Necklaces showcases a Royston Ribbon Turquoise and Sterling Silver Cross Pendant by Santa Fe artist Dan Dodson. The splash or "ribbon" of Turquoise in the Royston Ribbon stone is created by taking Turquoise in its natural host rock, and cutting in a direction to showcase the vein. This creates a dramatic look that is coveted by Turquoise lovers and collectors alike. Our Royston Ribbon stone has a vertical Turquoise vein, displayed against a background of chocolate brown and tan. The oval stone is set in a raised Sterling Silver Bezel on a plate of Sterling Silver, crafted in the shape of a Cross. The Cross has been intricately stamped and decorated with 10 handcrafted Sterling Silver Stars, each individually soldered in place. The Pendant hangs from a custom Circular Bail with decorative stamping. The piece is marked on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling." We've paired this great Pendant with 3 strands of 6mm Turquoise Rondelles, which are sky blue with chocolate brown matrix. The Rondelles are complemented by 8mm Amber Quartz Rounds, which are translucent brown and polished to a soft sheen. The stones are highlighted by 4mm translucent gray Fire Polished Glass and 8mm Sterling Silver Ridged Rounds. At the top of the Necklace the 3 strands of Turquoise Rondelles transition to 3 strands of Fire Polished Glass, streamlining the silhouette and ensuring wearer comfort. The Necklace is finished with a Sterling Silver Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 104 grams and is 20-1/2 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 3-3/8 inches by 2 inches including the 3/4-inch Bail.
