cheyenne turquoise necklace in mixed silver + goldfill
Measurements: Stone setting is approximately 1 1/16" long by 5/8" wide. Chain is 18"
Look at these beautiful, pale avocado green turquoise pools. This Cheyenne stone is simply gorgeous. It's wrapped in a goldfill bezel and sitting on top of two layers of sterling. I purchase this turquoise directly from the miner, who is a friend and fellow metalsmith. Made of sterling silver with a 14k goldfill bezel.
Goldfill is a layer of 14K gold bonded over a core of a base metal, usually brass. Goldfill is much more durable than gold plating and will not flake off. It is susceptible to tarnish, but can be easily cleaned with a polishing cloth. One polishing cloth is included with your order.
Necklace comes in a hand-sewn drawstring gift bag made out of repurposed fabrics or an eco-friendly gift box.
