Billy Jamarillo White Buffalo Necklace
Navajo silversmith, Billy Jamarillo, created this spectacular seven part necklace. Billy is known for his exciting bold designs. This necklace features 11 White Buffalo stones. White Buffalo Stone, commonly called White Buffalo Turquoise, is from a single mine near Tonopah, Nevada. It is known for its distinct beauty and purity. While similar to turquoise in its structure and formation, its stunning white and black color is due to the lack of heavy metals like copper, iron and zinc, which are responsible for the characteristic blues, greens and yellows found in turquoise. With only a single mine in existence the value continues to increase as the resources are depleted.
Over 100 handmade sterling silver beads on oxidized sterling silver provide drama and contrast. The necklace is finished with a handmade adjustable sterling silver chain with a movable clasp. This is a wonderful original piece of Native American art. Add this conversation starter to your collection.
