Sterling Silver Egyptian Turquoise Flower Pendant with 5mm Navajo Bead Chain
This Navajo handmade sterling silver pendant features a medium cluster of blue Egyptian turquoise stone with minimal dark brown webbing on an 18" 5mm Navajo Bead chain.
With bright robins egg blues and a webbing of rich burgundy and copper hues, each piece of Egyptian Turquoise has its own character. It is the original turquoise robins egg blue just like the blue found in high grade sleeping beauty, but on par or even better in quality. The richness of the color of this matrix is prized by collectors and can help to distinguish Turquoise from Egypt. The unique red-to-gold spider web lends Egyptian Turquoise well to being set in gold. The gem was so prized by ancient civilizations as it was used in crowns and royal jewels. It was a favorite of Tutankhamun and features (along with Lapis Lazuli, another Egyptian favorite) on his infamous Death Mask.
Calvin Martinez is a revival silversmith, creating classic, traditional styles of Navajo jewelry. He still uses many of the old techniques of silverwork, going so far as to shun commercially available sheet silver in favor of forged pieces, where old or scrap silver is melted down into ingots, then hand rolled into the necessary thickness for each piece of jewelry. His efforts have won entry into the finest shows and galleries, as well as some of the most exclusive private collections worldwide. Among his awards, first place at the prestigious Inter- Tribal Indian Ceremonial in Gallup, New Mexico.
We 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).
We 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.
chain measures 18"; pendant measures 2-3/4" X 1-1/4"
