This classy Necklace features a Turquoise and Sterling Pendant by artist Vernon Begay. The center Turquoise stone is 5-sided with wonderful hues of light and dark green and gold. The Stone is set on 2 plates of Sterling Silver in the shape of an equal-armed or Four Corners Cross, often interpreted as representing the four seasons or four elements: earth, water, air, and fire. The Pendant has a custom sterling Bail and full Sterling back. It is stamped with the artist’s hallmark and “Sterling.” We’ve paired the Pendant with a graduated strand of color-matched Haley’s Comet Turquoise from a recently re-discovered Nevada mine. This relatively rare Turquoise was mined by the Nevada Turquoise Company, and is cut in a shape called Dogbone in lengths ranging from 10-to-17mm. The Turquoise stones interlock, forming a graceful chain. We’ve complemented the Turquoise with 8mm dark green Jade Rounds, and wonderful 14mm Sterling Silver Moon & Star rounds. The Necklace is finished with a Sterling Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Sterling Silver Southwest Designs Charm. The piece weighs 106 grams and is 19-1/2 inches long. The Pendant is 1-1/2” square plus a 5/8” Bail.
