This classy Necklace features a Sonora Sunset and Sterling Silver Pendant by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. Sonora Sunset was discovered in 2006 in a Copper mine in Sonora, Mexico; the Stone was mined in limited quantities and has become increasingly rare on the market today. The unusual color combination of red (Cuprite), green (Chrysocolla) and black (Iron) makes it desirable for use in jewelry design, and our Sonora Sunset Stone is no exception. It displays an attractive blend of Cuprite and Chrysocolla with a trace of Iron matrix. The Stone has been shaped as an oval that narrows to a rounded point at each end. It is wrapped in a Sterling Silver Bezel and set on Sterling Plate that has been shaped to mirror the Stone. The Pendant drapes from a custom Sterling Silver Bail, and is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling."
We've paired the Sonora Sunset with 2 strands of 6mm Carnelian Rounds in semi-translucent cranberry hues. The Carnelian is color matched to the Cuprite in the Pendant Stone and is polished to a glossy sheen. The Carnelian is complemented by 4mm and 6mm Fire Polished Glass Ovals in transparent green. The Glass is faceted, giving off a subtle sparkle. The stones are highlighted by four 7.5-by-21mm Sterling Silver Long Oval Beads — which have Fish patterns stamped on both sides — and six 6mm Sterling Silver Double Ring Spacers. The Sterling shines attractively against the Carnelian's rich hues. At the top of the Necklace the 2 strands of Carnelian transition to 2 strands of Fire Polished Glass, streamlining the silhouette and ensuring a comfortable fit. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Cones and Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 86 grams and is 20-1/4 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 2-5/8 inches by 1-1/2 inches including the 1/2-inch Bail (when wearing, a vertical length of about 10 inches).
