This three bead, 51.25 carat, necklace is an homage to natural wonder. We are taken to another place, another time, to the Persian Empire and bazaars along the Silk Road, where the turquoise gemstone has been mined since 4,000 BCE. Mineral inclusions in these Persian Turquoise beads create the complexity of their body; colors trailing across their finely polished surface enchants us. A timeless symbol of prosperity, these rounded turquoise beads have been hand spun on 18K gold wire to showcase the natural beauty of the stone. Linked together, two smaller beads measuring ½” x ⅜” bookend the ⅝” x ½” center stone, creating a timeless piece with 18K baroque trace figaro chain on each end, this necklace measures 18 inches in length.
