Simply irresistible, this necklace is crafted of 38 large natural turquoise beads that possess a mesmerizing green blue hue. It is paired with elegant 14K matching turquoise bead drop earrings. Sweet turquoise dreams are made of this...
The turquoise is natural and has been certified by GIA NYC computerized lab testing. The necklace measures 21 inches long and is fitted with an 11.5mm lozenge clasp that measures 11.5x6.4mm, shaped like a button. The clasp is hallmarked "585" and is fitted with a self locking tongue and groove closure.
The color is absolutely gorgeous with the turquoise exhibiting a rich greenish blue hue with minimal black matrix. The beads range in size from 15.4mm at center, slowly graduating down to 11.5mm at the clasp. These beads are full rounds with a high polish sheen. This sheen or polish helps protect natural turquoise from color changing caused by contact with skin oils and lotions. The necklace weighs 117.4 grams and the turquoise carat weight is estimated at 575 carats.
The matching earrings are custom crafted of 9.5mm beads that suspend from 14K flower stems that are fitted with 14K pierced leverbacks. The earrings have a drop of 38.5mm, or just over 1-1/2". Together, the earrings weigh 4.8 grams. The earrings are hallmarked "14K" and have tested at 14K. They look great on the ear and offer a superior sway of turquoise that will melt your heart. Together, the necklace and earrings weigh 122.2 grams or 78.57 dwt.
We estimate age to be 1960's to 1970's. They have enjoyed a beautiful life and still possess their original glossy sheen with minimum color staining. The necklace has been freshly strung on turquoise silk in our signature hand knotted style to give you more turquoise to the inch with no kinking and less movement along the silk which extends the life of the stringing.
Unlike other colored stones, turquoise is one of the few gems that must be submitted to GIA labs for computerized testing to be certified as natural. GIA testing is not yet able to identify mine origin, but the rich hue of these beads is similar to the greenish blue hues of fine Persian turquoise.
This magnificent necklace showcases the wonder of top quality natural turquoise. Its intense hue, large beads and generous 21" length offer incomparable perfection.
Turquoise is the birthstone for lucky December babes, but all women crave it! It is also the wedding anniversary stone for the 5th and 11th years of marriage. But, turquoise is perfect for the celebration of any occasion, of just because.....all women's favorite!
This necklace will be delivered in a lovely presentation case along with a copy of its GIA report. Unlike other colored gemstones, turquoise can only be GIA certified through a GIA lab, not through standard grading by your local GIA gemologist. We've done the work for you, all you do is enjoy!
