This very heavy block turquoise necklace is extremely nice and in excellent condition. The various sizes of the block turquoise pieces range from round, marquise, oval and rectangular giving it a very nice appearance. All set in sterling silver, the back of this piece is hinged in several places as shown to lay just right on the skin. The link chain terminates in a shepherds hook clasp. This piece is quite heavy and has a great feel. Marked 925 on the back and on the clasp. A lot of silver went into the making of this piece. The look is stunning. This is an 18" necklace. The center of the piece is 1 1/2" and tapers to the sides.
Note: Block turquoise is not true turquoise but an imitation. Do not let anyone let you think that block turquoise has any turquoise. It is not reconstituted turquoise either. Some may make you believe that block turquoise is ground turquoise made into shapes, which is what reconstituted turquoise is. I love natural turquoise as you can see from my many pieces available and do not want anyone to get something that is not what it truly is.
