Cleopatra Style Godber Turquoise Necklace and Earring Set
Cleopatra style sterling silver and ultra rare natural Godber Turquoise Necklace and Earrings Set by Navajo artisan Ben Yazzie. Incredibly this gorgeous sterling silver and American Turquoise set is laden with 28 natural, hand cut in the 50s, spider web, top gem grade, high dome Turquoise cabochons from the Godber or Burnham Turquoise mine in Nevada, USA. At the bottom of this MUSEUM QUALITY Godber Turquoise Necklace and Earring Set is a cluster of five outrageous natural American Turquoise cabochons. The center two stones are large free form cut teardrops which are flanked by smaller teardrop Nevada Turquoise Cabochons. All of the stones in this beautiful Cleopatra style Turquoise necklace and earrings set are ornamented with handmade sterling silver raindrop designs. To each side of the center piece in the Turquoise Necklace there are 9 Godber or Burnham Turquoise links separated by handmade sterling silver jump rings. From there on the necklace features a handmade sterling silver chain. The sterling silver chain is hand stamped with three graduated round stamps. This beautiful American spider web Turquoise necklace is finished off with a handmade hook and eye clasp that is decorated with a small cabochon of the Godber / Burnham Turquoise. The earrings in this Godber Turquoise Necklace and Earring Set are two stone Turquoise dangle earrings. All of the old stock Burnham or Godber Turquoise was cut from the same vein of Natural Nevada Turquoise. This material was mine in the 1950s and cut sometime shortly thereafter. We acquired these beautiful baby blue spider web Turquoise cabochons from a retired jeweler who had cut them in the 50s in Reno, Nevada USA. This beautiful sterling silver and Godber Turquoise Necklace and Earring Set would be a wonderful show piece in any Turquoise Jewelry collection or American Indian Jewelry collection.
