Round Sonora Gold Turquoise Inlay Pendant

This Round Sonora Gold Turquoise Inlay Pendant was created by Navajo artist Peterson Chee. Beautiful blues and greens of the turquoise are accented by Sterling Silver channels at the bottom of the piece. Three individual stones were perfectly shaped to lay securely between the channels. The bail at the top is also inlaid. The circular shape was made from hand-cut and oxidized silver strips.   Sonoran Gold Turquoise is a two-tone turquoise with a golden matrix. It is mined as individual nuggets rather than from a vein. This exciting new turquoise is found near the city of Cananea, Mexico. If you love to collect genuine turquoise from many mines, you will love this pendant.

Hallmarked "C" and the artist's symbol (arrowhead) and Stamped "Sterling"
