Sterling Navajo Pendant with "new" No. 8 Mine turquoise, by Robert Shakey.

Sharp. Real sharp.  Everything just works with this piece.  That hand-rubbed "old-style" patina on the Sterling; the fine hand-stamping; the five pieces of repousse', and then—there's that stone.  The Drifter favors the old original No. 8, but for all practical purposes that's pretty-much gone and too hard and expensive to acquire anyway.  But we must admit that this new No. 8 Mine turquoise is quite nice.  Actually, it's quite beautiful.  And the Drifter is a sucker for anything beautiful, so here it is, available to the discerning buyer.  We don't count the bale (here it is a little over half-inch inside diameter) when we measure, so the length without the bale is a total of 2 and 3/8th's-inches.  And at the widest point it is 1.5-inches.  Weight is 23.7-grams, or .835-ounces.  It ships with an 18-inch solid Sterling box chain.  Don't wait long on this one.  Hallmarked "ROBERT SHAKEY."   Always complimentary Priority shipping within the U.S.
