Sterling Natural Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Cuff Bracelet D Livingston Signed. Stone: This bracelet features a cluster of beautiful rare AAA Grade Sleeping Beauty Turquoise cabochons. Sleeping Beauty turquoise comes in a pure sky blue or robin’s egg blue color and is relatively stable and suitable for jewelry making. The Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Mine, located in Globe, Arizona, is one of the most famous turquoise mines and produces some of the most desirable turquoise in the world due to the purity of its color. The mine closed for a second time (first time in the early 1960s) in August 2012, which has skyrocketed the price of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. The mine’s name comes from the mountain the mine is located in, which from far away looks like a sleeping woman lying on her back with her arms crossed. Artist: Darrin Livingston is a respected Navajo silversmith and jewelry maker. He lives in Church Rock, New Mexico, where he has lived most of his life and are where his father and grandfather are from. He lives there with his family of four girls and one granddaughter. He learned his silversmith trade at the young age of 13. After graduating from high school, he honed his skills and decided to make a living as a silversmith. We have become a fan of Darrin’s work and has quite a few of his jewelry in our collection. My Philosophy: I choose every piece of jewelry based on the value of the stone. Unlike most of the Turquoise on the market, the stone has to be high quality (not stabilized, not color treated and not reconstituted). I also love jewelry with unique character and great craftsmanship. What this means is that you are getting jewelry that is a showstopper and not to mention a great investment. Measurements: 1-1/4 Inch opening. 7 Inch inside circle (including opening). This bracelet will fit a wrist size of 5 to 6-1/2 inches. Bracelet Fitting Guide: Use a tape measure. Wrap the tape measure around your wrist on which you plan to wear your Toqos bracelet. Make a note of the number at the point where the tape meets the 0. To ensure the bracelet fits comfortably, add 1.5 cm or 1/2 inch. For sterling bracelets, some can be bent and adjusted due to the versatility of sterling silver. See our other items.
