This striking Necklace showcases a Red Jasper and Sterling Silver Teardrop Pendant by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. The Jasper Stone is an impressive 2-3/4 inches long by 1-1/2 inches wide, and is an eye-catching coral-red with light and dark-grey matrix. The Stone has been beautifully cut and shaped and polished to a soft sheen. The Red Jasper has been set in a raised Sterling Silver Bezel on Sterling Sheet, which has been cut to mirror the Stone's shape. The Pendant has a custom v-shaped Bail, and is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling." We've paired the Red Jasper and Sterling Silver Pendant with 3 strands of vibrant Bamboo Coral Buttons, which are color-matched to the Jasper Stone. Buttons are similar to wheel-shaped Heishi but they are taller; our Buttons are about 4.5mm tall by 7mm in circumference. The Coral is interspersed with 5mm smoke-colored Pearl Rounds and 3mm Olive Shell Heishi, picking up tones from the Pendant and adding design interest. At the top of the Necklace the 3 strands of Bamboo Coral transition to 3 strands of Olive Shell Heishi, streamlining the silhouette. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and a Wrapped Sterling Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 168 grams and is 22 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 3-3/4 inches tall by 1-3/4 inches wide including the 3/4-inch Bail.
