Gilbert Tom has been one of our favorite, go-to artisans for a very, very long time. We used to hand-draw a pic of something unusual; hand him the sketch and some choice cabochons, and in fairly short order he would produce something magnificent. His reputation has spread, though, and he's gotten very busy. The time involved in getting something from him has increased dramatically. So when he makes something like this we relish the opportunity to offer it to our valued customers. This beauty is fashioned in a traditional manner, and rubbed into the old-style satiny patina. And, it sports dazzling No. 8 Mine turquoise. Not counting the bale, it is 2.25-inches long and 1 and 5/8th's-inches across at the widest point. It weighs 28-grams, of .99-ounces. Hallmarked "Gilbert Tom" in cursive. No chain is included, but the pictured 4mm, 24-inch burnished Sterling bead chain (aka Navajo 'pearls') is offered as an option for an additional $111., making the total for the two $480. Call or text prior to purchasing to exercise this option and we'll change the price to reflect the addition. Complimentary USPS tracked Priority shipping within the U.S.
