This striking Necklace displays a Blue Vein Turquoise and Reticulated Silver Pendant by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. The Blue Vein is a large nugget, approximately 1-1/2 inches long by 3/4 inches wide by 3/8-inch tall. It is cerulean blue with dark brown spider web matrix, creating a beautiful interplay of color. Spider Web Turquoise is valued for its intricate patterns. The Turquoise Nugget is post-set on the Reticulated Silver* using 16 gauge Sterling Silver Wire, which has been shaped and wrapped around the stone. The Reticulated Silver has attractive layers and textures, creating visual depth and shine. Both the Turquoise and the Reticulated Silver are asymmetrical in shape, giving the Pendant energy and a highly custom look. The piece drapes from a v-shaped Sterling Silver Bail and is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling."  We've paired the Blue Vein Turquoise Pendant with 2 strands of color-matched blue Turquoise Nuggets from Arizona. The Nuggets are nicely shaped and vary in size from 7mm to 10mm. They are paired with 4mm translucent gray Fire Polished Glass Ovals, which are faceted and give off a slight sparkle. The stones are highlighted by eight 4mm Sterling Silver Rounds, which mirror the shine in the Pendant. At the top of the Necklace the 2 strands of Turquoise Nuggets transition to 2 strands of Fire Polished Glass, streamlining the silhouette and ensuring wearer comfort. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Rounds and Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 118 grams and is 21 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 2-1/2 inches by 1-1/4 inches including the 3/8-inch Bail (when wearing, a vertical hang length of about 9-1/2 inches).

*Reticulation is the process of heating Sterling Silver at high temperatures; the Copper alloy in the interior of the metal flows before the surface metal does, creating wonderful textures.
