Mens Choker of Nacozari Turquoise with Sterling Silver Accents
This outstanding men's choker combines simplicity of design with exceptional Nacozari Turquoise beads and sterling silver. These Nacozari heishi beads are genuine turquoise with the celebrated Nacozari coloration and just enough matrix and variation in shades to provide interest. The high quality hand picked beads are smooth and consistent in size. I provided contrast to the turquoise with three JBB International sterling silver tube beads with a stylized cable pattern. I also interspersed the turquoise with sterling silver disk beads to add fluidity and movement to the necklace. A silver-plate magnetic barrel clasp completes the design.
The necklace measures 18 ½ inches in length, and the turquoise beads measure 5 mm in diameter. The sterling silver components are 925 silver. The beads in this necklace came from the Nacozari mine in Sonora, Mexico, which is known for its high quality bright blue turquoise. Turquoise is considered a truth stone and is also believed to improve mental clarity. It has a tradition of protective qualities, and warriors attached turquoise to their arrows to ensure a true aim. This necklace combines these powerful qualities with an abundance of turquoise resulting in an outstanding piece of jewelry.
