Elevate your accessory collection with this sterling silver pendant made by Navajo jeweler Lillie Yazzie which seamlessly blends tradition and sophistication. Meticulously handcrafted, this pendant boasts eleven exceptional Kingman turquoise gemstones. Each stone was carefully selected by Yazzie, the centerpiece featuring an especially interesting blend of cerulean and golden-brown striations. Sterling silver drops rest between the outer turquoise stones while an oxidized rope-style bezel completes the motif.

 

With a history spanning over a millennium, the Kingman Turquoise Mine is one of America's earliest and most prolific sources of turquoise. Discovered by ancient indigenous peoples over 1000 years ago, Kingman turquoise boasts an enchanting sky-blue hue, offering a spectrum of blue variations. The mine’s legacy is intertwined with the history of the American Southwest, as has served as the largest turquoise supplier in the jewelry trade since the late nineteenth century.
