This is an absolutely gorgeous pendant! Designed by David Rosales, this was handcrafted by Native American jewelry artists in Gallup, NM. This pendant comes from their Shalako Collection, which consists of turquoise, sugilite, and lab-created opal. The Shalako Collection is one of our most popular works by David Rosales because of its mixture of beautiful colors. What makes this pendant so special, however, is its intricate inlay work. These Native American artists inlaid these stones with such amazing detail that it is difficult to believe that these stone could all be cut by hand. Some people think that these stones are cut by a laser or other machine. In fact, they are cut and ground down by a person and fit together flawlessly. There is so much skill and talent required to make this beautiful Native American jewelry.
This pendant has a simple border around the inlay work. Its style adds a bright sparkle to this pendant. The border adds a little extra detail without being too overbearing. It helps frame the center stones but keeps your attention on the important part.
This Native American pendant is 2" wide and a just over 2" long with the bail. The chain that you see pictured is not included. If you would like to add a chain, please contact us. Due to the amount of time required to make each piece of David Rosales jewelry, please allow around eight weeks to receive.
