This eye-catching Necklace showcases an intricate Turquoise and Sterling Silver Oval Pendant. The Pendant was cast to display a diamond and starburst raised design, then ornamented with 20 Sterling Silver Balls that were individually soldered in place. A sky blue Turquoise Round Stone was placed at the center of the Pendant, set in a handcrafted Sterling Bail with sawtooth detailing. The Pendant has a custom V-shaped two-wire Sterling Silver Bail, which drapes from four 8mm Sterling Silver Rounds spaced with aqua colored Matubo Czech Glass. The Pendant is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark "B" and "Sterling." An uncommon and striking piece.
We've matched the Pendant with 6 strands of complementary stones, including Turquoise, Button Pearls, Blue Lace Agate, Indonesian Glass and Faceted Glass. There are 2 strands of Turquoise, including 6-by-11mm Nevada Turquoise Nuggets in teal blue with brown matrix, and 6-by-9mm Turquoise Nuggets in sky blue. The Turquoise is paired with glossy 6mm Bronze Button Pearls, and 6mm Blue Lace Agate displaying a blend of blues and browns. The Agate is faceted, subtly sparkling in reflected light. The gemstones are accompanied by 4mm translucent green Indonesian Glass Rondelles and 5.5mm translucent tan Faceted Glass Rounds. The Faceted Glass Rounds are spaced with turquoise & copper Seed Beads, enhancing the composition of the strand. The blend of shapes, color, and opaque and translucent stones gives the Necklace wonderful visual appeal. The piece is finished with Sterling Silver Cones and Hammered Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. It weighs 168 grams and is 21-1/4 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 3-3/8 inches by 1-1/2 inches including the 1-inch Bail (when wearing, a vertical length of about 10-1/2 inches).
