What a fun turquoise pendant! This is a handcrafted pendant from David Rosales, who is well-known for his beautiful, contemporary Native American jewelry designs. This pendant has Sonoran Gold Turquoise, which comes from Sonora, Mexico. It is a fantastic stone that has become popular due to its luscious green coloring. You see a wide variety when it comes to this material. It can range from fully green to a mixture of green, blue, and yellow. It is a wonderful stone that draws a lot of attention.
This turquoise pendant has a simple heart shape that is great for any age. Turn this pendant around and you will find a fun Southwestern design in the silver. It would have been easy for David Rosales and his team to keep the back plain silver. In this case, they elected to add an intricate pattern to help liven up this pendant. These little details are part of what separates their Native American jewelry from many others.
This Sonoran heart pendant is 7/8" wide and 1" long, not including the bail. It is handcrafted in solid sterling silver, which is indicated on the inside of the bail. Due to the amount of time and work that goes into creating this inlaid Native American jewelry, please allow around eight weeks to receive this. Also, because Sonoran Gold Turquoise varies so much in color, your pendant will not look exactly like what you see pictured here. It may feature more or less blue colors in the stones. That being said, David Rosales always does amazing work and I know you will be thrilled once this arrives.
