The Medallion pendant feels "classic", a common theme here at LBJ. We love a piece of jewelry to look like a family treasure ... something your mother or grandmother may have owned. In this case, the Chinese Turquoise is absolutely stunning. That perfect, robin's egg blue with soft grey to brown matrix -- people cross the room to look at it! The interesting, geometric design is created in .925 Sterling Silver and is enhanced by oxidization and burnishing to create a 3-D, ornamental, shadowbox effect. Each piece is a little different ... one more beautiful than the next. Glad to let you choose your own stone if you're so inclined. The 16-18 inch chain is removable and optional (below) -- the 1.5-2mm chain is hefty and feels great after being oxidized, sanded and polished.
Turquoise - 13X18mm
Total width - 20mm
Length of pendant with bail - 45mm
.925 Sterling Silver Chain 16-18 inches (optional $40 chain for $30 additional -- see drop down)
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends its name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character.
All jewelry designs are created using natural gemstones. There will be some natural variation in the jewelry. Our best is done to represent colors and markings in our photos. At Linda Blackbourn Jewelry, I've tried my best to describe everything as accurately as possible -- in words and photos. Gemstones vary, of course, as do computer monitor screens, so there may be minor discrepancies.
