We've been offering Cecil Atencio's finely smithed work for over ten years. He makes bracelets, rings, pendants and necklaces. He always uses fine natural stones in his work.
This pendant is set with a perfect oval stone of natural, untreated Royston turquoise from Nevada. This stone could easily pass for Number Eight turquoise, but it is one of the very many colors and pattern of Royston turquoise. This stone is beautifully complemented by the saw and file work border and set in a 3/16" smooth bezel wrapped with twist wire.
Hallmarked C. ATENCIO and stamped STERLING on the back of the pendant.
