Turquoise and silver pendant
Just loving the natural Turquoise I've bought. The black matrix running through the stone is just beautiful. Some people love clear blue turquoise stones but I prefer a little matrix.
I have made a simple setting in Sterling silver, sometimes too much fuss takes your eye away from the beauty of the stone.
The word turquoise is derived from the French ‘turquois’ meaning ‘Turkish’ because the stone was first brought to Europe through Turkey from Persia.
Turquoise is the birthstone of December.
This pendant is hung from a 18 inch Sterling silver heavy chain.
