Ruby Mines etsy listing:
This is the necklace's etsy pictures. I ordered this necklace after browsing on blogger, and coming across Ruby Mines's blog. You can visit her blog here.
I LOVE this necklace, and am so glad that I bought it. It is the most expensive piece of jewelry I have ever purchased, but I have to say that I am 100% happy with my purchase. I even emailed her, asking her if it's possible that she can make me matching earrings!! I hope it's possible!
This necklace is made out of turquoise nuggets, meaning each nugget is a different shape, and they all have unique swirls of darker color through the rock. Here is a picture of the whole necklace. This is with flash, so the grains are a little hard to see. They are actually more noticeable in real life. It makes each nugget even more unique-looking and beautiful.
The necklace feels a little heavy, but not too much so that you can't wear it!
The cute packaging:
And a nice note:
I love beading and making jewelry, but have yet to experiment with heavier stones or beads. This is strung on wire with a few inches of silver chain to make it adjustable to the length you want, and attached with a lobster clasp.
Since it has silver chain, (plus turquoise looks GREAT with silver, in my opinion) I would wear this with small silver hoops or studs. I also love the look of it with gold hoops or studs, but only with my hair down to hide the silver chain.
As you can see the color is a bright blue turquoise! So pretty. .
About my taste in jewelry:

I love simplicity.
