This terrific Necklace showcases a Sonoran River Turquoise and Sterling Silver Pendant by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. The stone displays Bronze matrix, which was achieved by blending the Sonoran River Turquoise with Bronze and then compressing it. The result is an uncommon stone with striking character and beauty. The Turquoise has been cut in an oval shape and set in a raised Sterling Bezel on a plate of Rolled Sterling Silver with curved contours. The stone is surrounded by 27 Concho Stars, each individually made and soldered in place. The Pendant hangs from a v-shaped Sterling Silver Bail, which has been shaped and adorned with 2 Concho Stars. The Pendant is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling." An exceptional piece. We've paired the Pendant with 2 strands of Kingman Turquoise and Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Long Chip, which have been blended together and display a myriad of blue and blue-green hues. The Turquoise is complemented by 8mm amber Czech Luster Glass, and 4mm cognac Fire Polished Glass. The latter is faceted and emits a subtle sparkle. The stones are highlighted by four handcrafted 11mm Stamped Sterling Silver Rondelles, which contrast nicely with the rich tones of the Turquoise. The Necklace is finished with a Wavy Sterling Silver Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest-Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 126 grams and is 19-1/2 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 3-1/2 inches by 1-5/8 inches including a 3/4-inch Bail (when wearing, a vertical hang length of about 10 inches).
