This stunning necklace features an incredibly gorgeous high grade piece of Turquoise from the Royston mine, in Tonopah, Nevada. -A mine highly favored by turquoise collectors. This variety of turquoise is becoming increasingly rare, as such its value will continue to grow. This stone has been a cherished part of our collection for several years, as it is an exceptionally beautiful example of the best qualities of Royston Turquoise.
The Royston turquoise cabochon is set in Fine Silver, atop a Sterling Silver base with handmade floral elements. Each leaf and flower was individually handcrafted entirely from scratch. First the design is drawn and sawn out of plain Sterling Silver sheet, then it is hand stamped, soldered, filed, formed, sanded, and polished, making it completely one of a kind, rather than mass produced from a mold and cast.
The pendant attaches directly to a decorative chain, with an adjustable length of 16" or 18" and secure lobster clasp. All connections have been soldered closed for durability. The back of the pendant has been stamped with 925 (Sterling Silver Hallmark) and artist's initials (AB) and given a high polish finish. Pendant and chain are entirely comprised of solid Sterling and Fine Silver.
Truly a one of a kind collector's piece for lovers of American Turquoise.

This stone is 100% natural and untreated. It is of the estimated less than 5% of Turquoise worldwide that is of high enough quality to be made into jewelry without being treated for hardness or needing color enhancement. *Please be aware, presence of host rock and/or minor pitting is often present in untreated turquoise stones (including this fine specimen), as they have been cut and polished straight from the Earth without any chemical fillers, resins, or dyes. These "imperfections" add to the stone's charm and character. Please get in touch prior to purchase if this is a concern to you, and we'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Please treat your piece with care and avoid contact with water, oils, chemicals, and soaps to protect the natural color of this stone.
