Handmade hammered sterling silver cross necklace with bezel set Blue Ridge turquoise. Made to look vintage and well loved, this cross and the sterling oval cable chain it hangs from have been oxidized giving them a warm patina. The 6mm turquoise stone comes from the Blue Ridge mine in Nevada. Initially this mine produced beautiful shades of green turquoise. Recently, it has become a source for deep blue and robin’s egg blue turquoise.
