Classic Kingman Grade Turquoise Pendant With Sterling Silver - Leila
This striking finest quality Kingman grade Turquoise cabochon is complimented beautifully by a contemporary bail that has been cold forged from Sterling Silver and lightly hammered to create a stunning contrast between the energised blue hue of the Turquoise and the lustrous, classic look of the Sterling Silver.
With a choice of a stylish 18 or 20in Sterling Silver diamond cut Snake chain to finish this pendant perfectly.
From the Kingman Turquoise Mine in Arizona, USA this cabochon has been hand cut and polished in the UK and is distinguished by its sky-blue colour and unique lustre.
We do not use reconstituted turquoise (this is small pieces of stone and turquoise chalk powder with dye and plastic binder).
The talisman of Kings, Shamans and Warriors, Turquoise is one of the world's most ancient gems thought to have been mined as early as 6000 BC.
Its name derives from the French pierre tourques meaning "Turkish Stone", as it first arrived in Europe via Turkey, originating in Iran.
Turquoise is very porous so all our jewellery made from this stunning gemstone is "stabilised" by impregnating the stone with a suitable substance.
Often given as a token of friendship it is said to provide calm and protection to its wearer.
