Kingman Turquoise Pendant FJP1688

Details:

Twisted wire metal working for jewelry making is a very old Navajo technique, and can be found in vintage and Old Pawn jewelry made by Southwestern tribes. Sterling Silver drops are also a design element that you will see frequently in Native American handmade jewelry.

Mined by Native Americans as early as 600 AD, Kingman Turquoise is a classic American Turquoise. The Arizona turquoise mine became famous for its nuggets, which few mines produce. Today, Kingman Turquoise is highly prized and sought after by collectors everywhere, and it's one of the more easily recognized American Turquoises.
