This outstanding Necklace showcases a Kingman Turquoise and Sterling Silver Pendant by Navajo artist Elouise Kee. The Turquoise is classic Kingman, blue-green in color splashed with golden brown matrix. The stone is cut in a teardrop shape and wrapped by a raised Sterling Silver Bezel and Twisted Sterling Wire. The Turquoise is set on 2 layers of Sterling Silver, with the top layer decoratively cut and stamped. The bottom layer of Sterling Silver is polished on the back and oxidized on the front to accentuate the cut-out patterns. Both layers of Sterling Silver mirror the shape of the Kingman Stone. The Pendant has a beautifully stamped Bail, and is signed on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling." A terrific, impact piece with great character. We've paired the Pendant with Graduated Kingman Turquoise Large Nuggets, color matched to the Pendant stone. The Nuggets are attractively shaped and polished to a fine sheen. Discs of Tortoise Shell Heishi have been placed between each of the Turquoise stones to allow them to be viewed more clearly, creating visual depth and design interest. At the top of the Necklace the Turquoise Nuggets transition to 3 strands of Tortoise Shell Heishi, streamlining the silhouette and ensuring wearer comfort. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 152 grams and is 20 inches long plus the Pendant, which is an impressive 3-3/4 inches long and 1-7/8 inches wide including the 1/2-inch Bail (when wearing, a vertical hang length of about 11 inches).
