Horse Lover Cameo Stamped Silver and Turquoise Necklace

98.00

A sweet horse cameo for the horse lover! The pendant is hand forged and has a frame of stamped southwest sun rays. Bright blue turquoise tubes are wire wrapped and connected to oxidized silver chain. Necklace measures 17" -18" with lobster clasp and adjustable length chain closure. Sterling silver, which has been oxidized and hand polished for an antique finish.

About turquoise: The name turquoise means "Turkish stone" because the trade route that brought it to Europe came via Turkey. Turquoise is a non-translucent stone of which the most valuable specimens are robin's egg blue or deep-blue azure. It also comes in brown, yellow, and many shades of green. The veins are inclusions from nearby rock fragments or oxides that form during the creation of turquoise.

Turquoise, the gemstone worn by pharaohs and Aztec kings, is probably one of the oldest gemstones known. Native Americans and many of the Indian tribes in Mexico used turquoise for currency, and the stone is still associated with the religious rites of the Navajo. Because it remains fashionable, turquoise is quite highly prized, although it is fairly plentiful.

Your jewelry will arrive beautifully gift wrapped in a small box. If this is a gift being shipped directly to the recipient, please let me know. I will be glad to include a note from you.
