1,650.00 1,795.00

**SALE IS FOR THE~CROSS AND THE 2`STRAND~16"~STERLING NAVAJO PEARL NECKLACE!**

SRP: $2495 & UP

In comparison to other Aldrich pieces,this pendant is on the larger side..It is designed with the finest mosaic workmanship, the stones are literally all hand cut & laid in a SW pattern & are set in very vintage finish sterling.The cross has an explosion of colors known to Santa Fe style jewelry & are complimentary to the other..The turquoise is vivid blue & has just enough orange spiny oyster in it, that helps to boost the color! The "V" cuts of high grade (and "real" ) Australian Opal are surrounded by the "V" cuts of deep purple Sugilite..There is a tad of green & by the color,I do believe it is Gaspeite.

The mosaic is so perfect,that it is hard to tell where one stone starts or the other begins! Normally with a mosaic technique,you see where the stones connect & this is the guaranteed workmanship that you will be getting, with anything that is made by them.You just don't see the connecting stone,without having a magnifying loupe!! This is full of color & is designed with the best quality gems on the market..The cross has a durable,thick 'Shepherds Hook' 

The necklace is very versatile!! 

1)You can leave as is, 2)take the cross off & put it on another necklace,3) wear the beads alone,4) put another pendant on them!

The bead necklace is oxidized & comes with a nice vintage finish & goes with much of today's SW jewelry..

 If your a collector of the Aldrich's work,You will find that you can pair this with any other Aldrich pieces or pull from the stones & pair other pieces with the stones in these.

The cross sits in a serrated bezel & all the 'teeth' are in perfect shape.
