Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Necklace
This genuine Sleeping Beauty turquoise necklace has stunning color and high polish. Each bead has its own personality.
Hand knotted along the entire length of pure silk jeweler’s cord, these turquoise beads are the finest and best quality I have ever come across in nearly two decades making jewelry. Some have polished pyrite that reflects like mirrors, and others have swirls of blues reminiscent of what you might see while flying over tiny islands in the Caribbean Sea. They are graduated in size, with the smaller stones in the back gradually increasing in size to the largest stone, which is front and center.
The size of these stones range from about 8.91mm x 5.27mm to about 14.24 mm x 9.79mm and are about 2 to 3mm thick. Alternating between each teardrop is a faceted Sleeping Beauty turquoise roundel measuring approximately 3 x 2mm – even these smaller roundels are high end turquoise and gorgeous in their own right.
The necklace is 22 inches in length. The clasp and components are all solid sterling silver.
