Wow. That is gorgeous. The bezel is unique and interesting. Could you post the back and the hallmark you described?
Oh good grief, can’t believe I forgot that one. Will post it now.
Trying to upload a larger version of one picture so it is easier to see the bezel. When I enlarge the photo on my iPad, it blurs.
I would call this a piece of Turquoise Mountain. It is a big stone, guess would be something like 120 carats. I am not familiar with this mark.
Thank you! I’m not even certain it’s Native American, but that stone was mesmerizing. I appreciate your help
that’s interesting - is it raised, like wire? or an optical illusion?
Yes it is raised. It looks like someone formed the letters out of wire and then soldered them to the piece.
It is really nice and the style is Native American, so until someone knows that hallmark I would lean that way.
If tcw is 96 grams I would think the stone is at least 60 grams or 300 carats.
Like your math—makes the turquoise worth much more than I paid for the necklace. Do measurements of the stone help because the length and width are in my original description.
I’ve always heard weight but have never known how to figure a set stone.
The other question I have is what is coral worth these days? Those three pieces are decent size.
That stones is mesmerizing indeed. You got a treasure so beautiful.
I ran across this while scrolling through old posts. Yours really reminds me of my ring.
Cool ring! I saw a ring by a well known artist and he had used a very similar stone to the one in my necklace. Then I also bought another. Both were listed as Bisbee so I posted my ring and necklace in a private FB group and was told by an administrator that both were Bisbee. It was a look that I had never seen before. Now I’m truly in love!
Interesting, Jason suspects mine is Kingman. All I know is the artist said it’s natural turquoise, he thought from NV, but wasn’t sure on that. I saw Kingman that TOTALLY looks like mine.
