Navajo DARREN LIVINGSTON Huge Cleopatra Turquoise Sampler Showpiece 925 Necklace

3,600.00

NAVAJO MADE by DARREN LIVINGSTON

Navajo Darren Livingston walks in his well known father Paul Livingston's footsteps & taught this fine jeweler,who has become a master jeweler himself!! Everything I have come across or have sold,always had pristine workmanship,while always close to his Navajo roots,when it comes to designing traditional Navajo jewelry.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DESCRIPTION:

If you like to turn heads & wear quality style Navajo showpieces,this then will do the job!

Darren did not take making this necklace lightly & it is quite obvious that lots of love & time went into making it right. This isn't no "average,touristy,common" style turquoise necklace that you will find on everyone else & all over the internet..It is a one of a kind piece & made for the woman who loves statement~show pieces!! Everything about this is on the generous side,from the chunky size turquoise, to the weight of the sterling!! It is heavy piece & worth it's weight!

The turquoise is from a sampler selection from different mines & a lot of it is from the Carico Lake & Royston mine ..The turquoise is all high quality & comes natural & not treated like a lot of the lower end~commercial style jewelry, has.Each stone is larger than what most wear in a single piece of jewelry! The tones range from blues to greens to teals,so there is tremendous contrasts & lots of matrix patterns that give each so much character!

It is made up of 3 separate sections,where the stationary center lays in a "V" shape & follows up the neck with bendable sections that can fold down because of the pins.(Great for travel!!) The stones are bezel set in a vintage style oxidized matte finished sterling,so there will be no need to polish & will compliment today's SW jewelry that is heavily oxidized. In between the stones, are sterling beads that fill in the bare sterling..Darren went so far with this, that the chain is totally done by hand & made up of thick gauge sterling"O" rings! It acts like an extender,so you can wear it high OR low! You would just put the hand made hook,anywhere you wish!

This has heirloom quality & is perfect for the Opera,any Black Tie event,theater,weddings,anniversary's,etc..Would also make the perfect gift!
