Navajo 18"l 5-Strand Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Nuggets Necklace
Item #45713
We regret that this item is not available at this time.
Showcasing lapidary work at its finest, each bead of this hand-strung Navajo 18"l. 5-Strand Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Nuggets Necklace is shaped entirely by hand by a Navajo lapidarian. Handmade cones and hook clasp are Navajo silversmith-made from sterling silver. Handcrafted in the U.S.A. Naturally occurring turquoise variations and individually crafted findings assure each necklace is unique.
The “skystone” turquoise—like the individually crafted turquoise nuggets jeweling this Navajo 5-Strand Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Nuggets Necklace—has been mined by Native Americans since 1000 CE. Highly sought for its sky blue color and little-to-no veining, Sleeping Beauty turquoise comes from a now-closed Arizona mine of the same name. The extensive Navajo jewelry holdings of the National Museum of the American Indian include many turquoise necklaces.
18"l. with 2.125"l. extender.
