Here we have a White Buffalo pendant that was handmade in sterling silver by a Navajo Native American jewelry artist. The stone has a creamy white color at the bottom with some splashes of black towards the top. We picked out this White Buffalo pendant specifically because we liked the stone; it has a nice amount of black but is not overpowering. It is difficult to tell by the picture but the stone is rounded and sticks out from the silver setting somewhat. Speaking of which, the Native American jewelry artist added some detailing around the stone that helps draw your eye to this pendant.
White Buffalo is a really neat stone that continues to grow in popularity. While you sometimes see it called White Buffalo Turquoise, it is actually not turquoise at all. That said, it does have a similar look to turquoise albeit in a more muted color palette. These neutral colors are actually quite nice at times. They are softer, less piercing than turquoise for the days when you want a less bold outfit. White Buffalo deserves a distinct spot in any Native American jewelry fan's collection.
This White Buffalo pendant is the piece of jewelry that we chose to feature in the July issue of Nebraska Life magazine. It was chosen partly because we love the size of the pendant and the stone is so pretty!
This pendant has the initials "LJ" stamped on the back to indicate the initials of the artist. It is 7/8" wide and 1 1/4" tall, not including the bail. It also includes an 18" sterling silver chain.
