Turquoise Silver Necklace, Chunky Southwest Handmade Gemstone Jewelry

Item Description

The exquisite TURQUOISE SKIES handmade necklace exudes the soul of the Desert Southwest’s vast sky.  You can definitely see why turquoise is a sacred stone to the Navajo, Zuni and other Native Americans since it is called "fallen sky stones.".  The chunky gemstone and silver necklace features smooth, oval shaped turquoise nuggets that are slightly graduated in size. The color of the stabilized genuine turquoise is mostly blue, but there are some greenish tinges, as well.  All of the eye catching turquoise nuggets have a midnight black matrix that adds amazing definition to each and every piece.
In the front of the necklace, large sterling silver fancy beads that are a rounded cube shape separate the turquoise ovals.  On each of the four sides of the sterling beads are four raised dots of granulated silver that were given a darker patina and then polished to bring out the details. The turquoise at the back of the necklace is separated by 3 mm sterling silver beads.  A graceful sterling silver toggle clasp with a bow like design finishes the gemstone necklace perfectly. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the TURQUOISE SKIES necklace is a thoughtful jewelry gift for the woman who treasures artisan Southwest inspired jewelry.

Turquoise, a gemstone sacred to the Navajo, Zuni and other Native Americans, is a stone of wholeness, promoting a sense of unity with all that surrounds us; it is believed to bring peace of mind, a soothing energy and healing of the spirit.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
