People ask about the origin of Golden Hill(s) turquoise. It comes from Kazakhstan. It's some exotic stuff all right. And, it's pretty. It's also very popular now and a bit pricey as well. Robert Shakey did the silversmithing on this beauty, and he did his usual masterful job. It's almost as pretty as one of them Faberge egg things. Not counting the generous bale, it is an inch-and-a-half long and 1 and 1/8th's-inches across at the widest point. The subtle "old-style" patina shows off Robert's crisp hand-stamping. It comes with the pictured 18-inch, solid Sterling box chain. Weight without the chain is 11.8-grams, or .415-ounces. Hallmarked "Robert Shakey." Always complimentary Priority shipping within the U.S.
