High-Grade Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Beaded Necklace, n66
This genuine Sleeping Beauty turquoise necklace has stunning color and high polish. This stylish necklace makes a statement yet maintains elegance. Worn with a crisp white shirt, jeans, and cowboy boots –you will look like you hopped right out of a magazine!
These turquoise beads are the finest I had ever come across in my nearly two decades of making jewelry. Some have polished pyrite deposits within the stone 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. Each stone has its own personality.
The beads are graduated in size, with the smaller stones in the back gradually increasing to the largest stones, front and center. 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. A tiny knot in the pure silk jeweler's cord holds each bead in place.
The necklace is 22 inches long, and the clasp and components are all solid sterling silver.
One of a kind
