Wire-Wrapped Vintage Blue Turquoise Pendant in Sterling Silver
I have wrapped this gorgeous natural vintage blue turquoise stone in bright sterling silver wire. It would look beautiful on anyone, and is a great gift for anyone who loves unique, high-quality crystals and gemstones! It would also be a wonderful gift for anyone with a December birthday as turquoise is the birthstone for that month. It has been backed with an epoxy resin which is a common practice in professional lapidary to stabilize the relatively soft stone that is turquoise. I sourced this stone from the estate of a jeweler who collected American-mined turquoise through the 1970s. This turquoise was not marked for its mine location, however it is a piece of vintage American turquoise and has such an incredible, vivid color!
MEASUREMENTS: 2" x 5/8"
MATERIALS: Sterling silver wire, turquoise (backed with epoxy)
This pendant comes with a complimentary adjustable Sterling Silver chain.
Over time, Sterling Silver may take on a darker color. Each purchase from my shop comes with a complimentary yellow polishing cloth, which you may use at any time to polish your piece. (The cloth will still work even as it gets darker; do not wash the polishing cloth.) When polishing, try to avoid the stone so as not to scratch it. Please do not wear in the shower or pool. There may be small imperfections on the stone. I have done my best to photograph it fully. Please do not get this stone wet as turquoise is a softer stone.
Please do not manipulate or bend the wire around the stone, or push on the stone, as it may affect the integrity of the piece and cause it to become unstable.
