The necklace is strung with natural turquoise roundel beads interspersed with sterling silver beads. The elegant oxidized sterling cross pendant is vintage Native American with inlaid turquoise. This was purchased from an estate sale. The toggle clasp is inlaid with green and opal gems.
The necklace is elegant and fashionable. It is a classic style bead necklace to be worn year round to the office and to parties. It matches all color outfits and enhances every color skin tone.
Turquoise is becoming a favorite with high end designers and seems to be going up in price all the time. It is a favorite gem of mine and I use it whenever I find it at a reasonable price. Crosses are artistic in addition to being spiritual symbols. Their combination resulted in this elegant and classic necklace.
Dimensions: The pendant: 2" long and 1" wide. Bead Chain: 18" long. Roundel beads: 4 mm.
Care: Turquoise beads are stabilized and chemicals must not be used to clean them. Their care is similar to pearls - last one to be worn and first thing to be taken off. The findings are sterling and sterling plated base metal. Storing the necklace in a tarnish proof container is recommended.
