It's impossible to resist the charm of genuine Sleeping Beauty turquoise. You know "the color" that is so recognizable at first glance. This beauty offers 350 carats of pure joy.

Let's make a sweetheart of a deal for you on this top quality natural Sleeping Beauty turquoise strand. No dyes, no matrix, just perfection. Layaway terms available.

While officially referenced as robin's egg blue, Sleeping Beauty's signature hue reminds me of a clear blue winter sky over the Rocky Mountains. Not an average turquoise hue by any means, this magnificent color never fails to mesmerize, acting like a beacon that attracts one and all as soon as you walk through the door wearing it. Isn't that what every woman is looking for?

This necklace showcases 45 genuine Sleeping Beauty full round cut beads in a 22" length. It is fitted with a 12mm 14K yellow gold self locking bead clasp with a sparkling stardust finish. This is a graduated design, with bead at center measuring 17.2mm, mid-line at 10.5mm and 9.7mm at the clasp. The clasp is hallmarked "585" and the necklace weighs 73.3 grams.

The turquoise is natural and not dyed and the surfaces are polished to a high gloss. When magnified, the largest 17.2mm bead exhibits two pale matrix lines that are just slightly greener than the body of the turquoise. These are no visible with the naked eye. Under magnification all of the beads have unique formation lines. These are not manufactured imitations, rather grand achievements of Mother Nature.

The pastoral blue hue and matrix free qualities of Sleeping Beauty turquoise have enchanted ever since its 1980's rediscovery in the Globe Arizona copper mine. The news of its discovery quickly spread, attracting some of the biggest, best and most admired names in the jewelry business from around the world. Lauded as a welcome replacement for the depleted Persian turquoise mines, its unique color quickly became identifiable at first glance. All women wanted it. Alas, the supply could not keep up with the demand, and unfortunately this sky blue variety itself is no longer being mined. Large bead necklaces such as this are in short supply and this blue beauty will not disappoint, we guarantee it.

This necklace has been recently restrung and is ready to enchant. The beads are in excellent condition, with all retaining their original high gloss polish and hue. The clasp is in excellent working condition with no dents in its bead nor damage to its trombone latch.

Do note that natural turquoise does require just a bit of care to prevent oils, hair sprays and perfumes from causing discoloration over time. A simple swipe with a wet cloth from time to time will keep their true blue hue in great shape. We will include a copy of our easy turquoise care instructions with your purchase.

This necklace will be delivered in a lovely presentation case as well as the silk necklace folder included as a backdrop for our last photo.

Free delivery to your door via Federal Express, 2 days to the USA. Discounted $75.00 worldwide via Federal Express, with the exception of 5 days to Australia.
