One of a kind Alert!
Shadows, because of the nature of the patterns on this beautiful piece of Chinese Dragonskin Turquoise. Simply, boldly and elegantly set in .925 Sterling Silver using traditional silversmithing techniques by me in my Silver Spring studio. This is a one of a kind pendant.
Stunning stone needed not much so set very simply in .925 Sterling Silver -- but I thought the filigree bail was a nice touch. The large, oxidized .925 double rope chain has been augmented by me with Turquoise-- customized specifically for this pendant. The pendant is available with or without the customized chain. If you want the pendant only choose the 0 inch chain option.
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 it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue. The Kingman Turquoise Mine is one of the oldest and highest producing Turquoise Mines in America. It was originally discovered by prehistoric Indians well over 1000 years ago. Kingman Turquoise is known for its beautiful sky blue color and produces many variations of blue Turquoise.
