Silver is soft and can break. So connectors, wires and hooks could be non 925. Not all parts have been tested. Contact me if you have any questions. Please look at sizing carefully.
High quality turquoise is sought after & expensive. Descriptions of items are researched to the best of my ability. If you have information that is helpful it is very welcome and appreciated.If you see errors in the listing please let me know. I'm a small business of 1 person trying to juggle my kids, and 3 other businesses besides this one. I aim to give as much detail and accuracy as possible. I try my best to give Great service to all my buyers. Please check out my other items and add me to your favorite sellers list. If a customer hasn't paid or communicated after three days I'll typically re-list the item. FYI Requesting a 50% reduction on high priced items is not reasonable. Certain items are listed higher due to precious metals content, history, Collectors items or famous names attached to items. I make handmade fine rings and necklaces as well as sell vintage estate & other jewelry. Jewelry stores gouge customers whereas I try to only go a specific % above actual costs. Look up the cost of the liquid silver beads and you'll understand why these types of items are so high in price. Just a small pack is a small fortune and this is 20 strands of them.
If you want a custom ring or necklace made with a certain size in mind I'm happy to help. I'm in the USA and can even upgrade to priority if needed. In general, Native American artists began using the sterling stamp in the 1950s and 1960s. So unmarked Native American items may indicate production in the first half of the 1900's. Real Native/Southwest Jewelry typically has the highest quality turquoise along with silver.
I test turquoise with acetone and a scratch test and silver with an acid test. Howlite would bleed blue with an acetone test. This item is in the category "Jewelry & Watches\Ethnic, Regional & Tribal\Necklaces & Pendants". The seller is "nwoboecane" and is located in this country: US.
