THE STORY BEHIND THE JEWELRY
Sterling silver and Kingman Turquoise.
The inner necklace circumference measures approximately 25-3/4" long.
This magnificent and traditional necklace represents the finest of Southwestern craftsmanship! The necklace is hand strung out of genuine sterling silver and real Kingman Turquoise beads. The necklace is made up of THREE strands that consist of a stunning combination of Liquid silver, 9-mm Kingman Turquoise round beads, 6-mm and 9-mm Kingman Turquoise rondelle beads, along with 2-mm and 3-mm silver round beads. The three strands in this necklace elegantly graduate, while being held together by TWO silver divider bars so that the necklace will lay perfectly around your neck. Each end of the necklace is completed with a silver cone for a beautiful finish. The cones are stamped sterling.
Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of their appeal and beauty.
