Nature gives us very few blues. This necklace combines two of the most beautifully occurring natural blues.  Featuring 10mm round spherical cut Turquoise from the original Royal Beauty Mine in Nevada interspersed with irregular handcut rondells of dense Lapis Lazuli. As always, of course, although the Turquoise has been stabilized the color is natural and the individual beads show the striking combination of black spiderweb and intense blue –reminiscent of the South Seas– that has quickly made Royal Beauty so sought after. (And so copied –this, of course, is genuine.) Handknotted on pale blue silk and finished with a heavy 14k (yellow) gold safety clasp. The almost 18″ length is ideal for a statement necklace. Not too long, not too close to the throat.
