This terrific Necklace features a Sonora Sunset and Sterling Silver Pendant by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. Sonora Sunset was discovered in the Milpillas Copper Mine in Sonora, Mexico shortly after the mine opened in 2006. The gemstone is beautifully colored, with red (Cuprite), green (Chrysocolla) and black (Iron) markings. Though Milpillas is still in operation, the Sonora Sunset was mined out years ago and is a rare and sought after stone. Our Stone displays striking swaths of turquoise-green bejeweled with coral-red and traces of black. It has been cut in the shape of a flat-topped triangle and wrapped in Sterling Silver Bezel. The Sonora Sunset sits on Sterling Silver Plate that has been shaped to mirror the dimensions of the Stone. The Plate has linear stamping on each of the four corners, adding texture and visual appeal. The Pendant drapes from a custom V-shaped Bail and is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling."

We've paired the Pendant with 5 strands of 4mm Bamboo Coral Rounds, color-matched to the Cuprite in the Sonora Sunset stone. The Coral is beautifully shaped and polished to a silky sheen. It is complemented by 3-by-6mm mint green Hubei Turquoise Rondelles, 9-by-13mm Aqua Czech Glass Saucers, and 4.5-by-8mm light green Crystal Rectangles. The Glass and Crystal beads are faceted, giving off a subtle sparkle. The Coral is woven so that 2 strands pass through each of the Czech Glass Saucers, gracefully cradling the larger stones and adding design interest. The larger Glass & Crystal stones are complemented by 3mm translucent green Fire Polished Glass and 4mm aquamarine 3-cut Matubo Glass Beads, enhancing the visual display. At the top of the Necklace the 5 strands of Coral transition to 5 strands of Silver Crystal Glass and Fire Polished Glass, streamlining the silhouette and ensuring a comfortable fit. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Cones and Hammered Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 98 grams and is 20-1/2 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 2-1/2 inches by 1-3/4 inches including a 1/2-inch Bail (when wearing, a vertical length of about 9-1/2 inches).
