Large Turquoise Pendant
Our love for turquoise is clearly defined by the size of some of the turquoise pendants in our collection. When choosing this gemstone variety we often come across larger cabochons which are too beautiful to ignore and prefer not to spoil them by cutting them down. This tantalising gemstone makes a stunning ladies pendant and despite its size is neither chunky or heavy.
Highly polished (although that's not particularly apparent from our photo) and boasting outstanding colour, this turquoise pendant has been crafted exclusively for Stone Mania in a timeless sterling silver setting. The stone reflects light beautifully and is silky smooth to the touch. Although the shape of this pendant in our photograph appears to be veering towards oval the left side is actually slightly shorter than the right which creates a wonderfully subtle abstract shape. The pendant is facing slightly towards the right of the frame but its shape makes you believe that it's facing directly towards the camera.
Turquoise is an old time favourite in the world of rocks and minerals and is just as popular now around the world as it always has been. It's important to note however that it is in fact a very delicate mineral which must be well looked after and that includes keeping it away from moisture and pollutants in the atmosphere including perfume, hairspray and cosmetics. We recommend turquoise be wiped with a soft cloth before and after being worn and that stones are kept covered when not being worn to protect them from knocks and scratches.
Turquoise which is the modern birthstone for the month of December is one of the oldest of all gemstones and the first to have ever been imitated.
