Above and to the left is a set of Santo Domingo Bisbee Turquoise Jatals, a Bisbee Turquoise Necklace bottom dangles.

Above and to the right is a Victorian style Bisbee Turquoise Necklace handmade by John Hartman of Durango Silver Company. John cut this amazing Bisbee Turquoise gemstone and then he set it in this beautiful Silver setting. The Silver work in this case was made as an accent to enhance this beautiful Bisbee Turquoise Gemstone.
The Bisbee Turquoise Necklace above and to the left is quite unique, this is Bisbee Ribbon Turquoise which is a directional cut of Turquoise vein that runs through a host rock. So, this is a narrow vein of Bisbee Turquoise that was formed in a crack of rock and several million years later it has become very hard which allows a stone cutter to cross cut the rock to obtain this unique gemstone cabochon.
Above and to the right is a Bisbee Turquoise Necklace in Gold. This beautiful Turquoise Necklace was handmade by John Hartman and is intended for that person who prefers Gold over Silver. John creates a lot of Gold Jewelry and Bisbee Turquoise is his gemstone of choice.
