14k Yellow Gold and Bisbee Turquoise Pendant
Take a look at this unique double stone “Lost Wax” style 14k gold and American Turquoise pendant. It is sure that there will not be another person you will ever see with an amulet like this. This one-of-a-kind Yellow Gold and Bisbee Turquoise Pendant focuses on two unique and 100% natural cabochons of AAA gem grade Bisbee Turquoise cabochons from the “Lavender Pit” in Bisbee, Arizona USA. These gorgeous natural Arizona Turquoise cabochons are set into this rare and unusual Turquoise and gold pendant with handmade prongs that imitate plant leaves. The two deep blue and brownish red smoky Spiderweb American Turquoise cabochons were cut from the same nugget of natural quality Turquoise from Bisbee, Arizona USA. The natural Bisbee Turquoise rough from Arizona that is featured in this Yellow Gold and Bisbee Turquoise Pendant was mined between 1940 and 1960 before Bob Matthews obtained the rights to the Turquoise from the “Lavender Pit” in Bisbee, Arizona. This genuine Turquoise was brought out of the mine by a miner who would put it in his lunch box when he found it and would carry it out at night to sell to the American Indian Jewelry artists to supplement his salary and pay for his large family. This was a common practice in large copper mines at the time and the Turquoise gained the name “lunch box turquoise”. This rare old stock Turquoise features the iconic deep blue and brownish red matrix that Bisbee Turquoise is famous for. We have never found Turquoise that looks like this from any other mine. That is one of the reasons that Turquoise collectors are so crazy about Bisbee Turquoise. Crystal Hartman did a wonderful job of accenting this wonderful and rare real Turquoise with her exceptional lost wax designs. Each piece of this two piece Yellow Gold and Bisbee Turquoise Pendant feature similar designs and were obviously created as one piece. The two 14k gold settings are connected together by each other in a way that gives that gold and Turquoise amulet a great movement. The leafy botanical designs of the prongs flow to the back of the pendant which is designed as overlapping leaves. Both sides of this unique Arizona Turquoise pendant are gorgeous and you can tell a lot of effort and thought went into making this American Jewelry masterpiece. The bale on the pendant is large enough to handle a sizeable gold chain or small beads and is hidden behind the top stone. It would be hard to find a better American Turquoise Amulet to rival this masterpiece of modern Gold Jewelry. American handmade in Durango, Colorado USA, this Turquoise and Gold Amulet is stamped 14k for 14 carat gold.
