I'm in love with matrix turquoises, besides the more affordable price, I prefer the markings in them to flawless stones.
I've only few modernist pieces in my collection, but I had to catch this one, and for less than 100$ I consider it is a bargain!
From the pics, I knew it wasn't those fake reconstituted turquoises widely encountered now...
But, my knowledge is very limited on the different provenance of these turquoises... perhaps some aware collectors can enlight it for me? American or Asian mines???
The unmarked silver necklace is 44cm long, weights 75 grams!
It was full of grime, and one stone has a crack I secured with glue.
All links are soldered close, mounting is rather well adapted to the freeform cabs.
The construction and placement of the links make it laying comfortably flat on the neck.
Very pleased with my latest buy :-D
