This beautiful sterling silver pendant features an 8mm round Sleeping Beauty cabochon. This cabochon is the classic sky blue color that Sleeping Beauty turquoise is famous for. The Sleeping Beauty mine, which is located in Arizona, United States, closed in 2012, making the material valuable and increasingly rare.
Turquoise is one of the birthstones for December. The turquoise cabochon is prong set in a round sterling silver round gallery bezel, adding more interest to this beautiful natural stone and hangs from a handcrafted ring.
The pendant measures 23 mm high (which includes the handcrafted ring it hangs from) and 8mm wide. The pendant hangs from sterling silver cable chain, which is dainty, yet very durable.
