Teardrop-shaped turquoise bar necklace by Navajo artisan Alfred Martinez. #2088

Don't let your girlfriend borrow this, you may never get it back!  This standout creation by well-known Navajo artisan Alfred Martinez is made in a sturdy, very traditional style of silversmithing, and it has a knockout turquoise cab stone to boot.  It looks a lot like No. 8 Mine, but in reality it is older-style Kingman, Arizona turquoise.  We only choose solid-back Sterling pieces, which this one is.  We simply won't buy or sell open, or 'hollow-back' pendants or rings.  End-to-end length is 19-inches.  But the 1.75-inch length of the pendant will add that much to the hang length.  The pendant is 1 and 1/8th-inches across at the widest point.  Weight is 22.1-grams, of .775-ounces.  Hallmarked "AM."  Complimentary same-day (if ordered by 1 p.m. CST weekdays) USPS tracked Priority shipping.  Sharp!
