High Grade Carico Lake Turquoise Cross Necklace Sterling Signed Donovan Cadman
This necklace features 7 handcut gem grade rare natural Carico Lake turquoise stones and they form a shape of a cross.
Carico Lake turquoise range from beautiful shades of blue to lime green. The lime green color is due to the high levels of faustite and zinc. Although blue turquoise is the majority produced, in recent years lime green has been most valued for its rarity and unique color.
The Carico Lake Turquoise Mine is a historic mine named for its home on a dried up lake bed located in Lander County, Nevada. Due to the short amount of time it's allowed to be mined each year, the supply of Carico Lake Turquoise is extremely limited.
Due to its increased interest and limited supply, Carico Lake turquoise has become a valued investment.
Donovan Cadman was born and raised in New Mexico. He started off in the early 90s and learned jewelry making on his own. His half brother is the famous and reowned artist Sunshine Reeves. He lives with his wife Loretta, and they have been married for almost 30 years. Together they have three children: Lyle, Dawn, and Nathaniel. Donovan always want his children to have the best life ever, so he decided to be a full time stay home father and his wife works full time. His wife appreciates his help at the house and he spends time making jewelry while he is not doing house work. He absolutely loves his grandkids and teaches them jewelry making and have them learn his techniques to carry on his fine craftsmanship.
Donovan loves incorporating dragonflies, humming birds, and crosses into his designs, because he loves mother natural, father God. and what it creates in life as transformational art as well as faithfulness. He also designs double arrow jewelry which represents friendship and kindness.
I choose every piece of jewelry based on the value of the stone. Unlike most of the Turquoise on the market, the stone has to be high quality (not stabilized, not color treated and not reconstituted).
I also love jewelry with unique character and great craftsmanship. What this means is that you are getting jewelry that is a showstopper and not to mention a great investment.
The cross pendant measures 2x4 inches. The necklace measures 24 inches total length. The beads on the necklace are 3mm in diameter.
3/4 x 5/8''
