This Item was just listed and measurements will follow.
very well made by top silversmith but we have not found the designer based on the Hallmark so if you know let us know please. We are thinking they are 1970’s to 1980’s but have not dated them until we identify designer’s Hallmark. Purchased from old stock of top jeweler in Virginia.
These are likely slightly vintage due to quality and color of turquoise which appears to not be stabilized which is required of cheap chalky turquoise and is definitely not cheap reconstituted material.
Sleeping Beauty is often ground and reconstituted and this is not. Sleeping beauty in its natural form often has some dark inclusions.
These are top quality pure .925 pure silver with two large gorgeous cabochons. Posts are solid and jeweler quality. They were purchased in a deal with a legacy jewelry store here in Virginia as estate pieces.
