SONORAN GOLD TURQUOISE Mined in Mexico near the city of Cananea this turquoise is relatively new to the industry. Unlike most turquoise Sonoran Gold is not mined in veins but rather as individual nuggets typically found in clay deposits. Accents of blue and gold against a green background make Sonoran Gold Turquoise a great selection for statement jewelry.
RAINDROPS are seen frequently throughout Native American jewelry. Sterling silver drops or "raindrops" are a traditional design element. They can be smooth and highly polished or they can be starlike and oxidized.
OXIDIZED STERLING SILVER is sterling that has been darkened using a surface treatment. This process helps to give the metal a "tarnished" look and is often used to provide contrast within jewelry pieces.
