Turquoise is one of my absolute favorite stones. It is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history and is considered a stone of protection.
This large turquoise stone is irregular in shape and thickness giving it an organic feel. The stone itself measures 7/8" x 1 1/8". The Turquoise definitely takes center stage in this piece! The textured backplate and silver accents play a supporting role but definitely add to overall earthy feel. The pendant is handmade from sterling silver with a fine silver bezel holding the stone.
Choose to hang the pendant from a sterling silver box chain or a "chain" made from 3 strands of black, waxed polyester cord. Waxed polyester cord is durable, soft and flexible. Both chains are adjustable in length from 16" - 20". Can't decide on a chain? Choose both! They are really easy to swap no matter the look you want
Pendant measures 1 3/16" x 2" including the ring at the top.

To maintain the beauty of your handmade jewelry I recommend not wearing it while exercising or showering. Excess sweat and chemicals can quickly tarnish your piece. Natural oxidation will occur over time on all Sterling Silver, Brass and Copper jewelry. Wearing them often is the best way to keep them looking good. Friction from everyday wear actually helps polish the metal. If tarnish occurs, your piece can be cleaned with a jewelry polishing cloth.
