My 'Adrianna' Necklace is comprised of a gorgeous white buffalo turquoise and two Kingman turquoise stones, which I've hand selected for this piece. The two main focal stones have a dark matrix, the upper stone has a bit of white which perfectly complements the white buffalo. Specimens like this are becoming increasingly rare (see below). The entire necklace was hand fabricated in my home studio of 925 sterling and 999 fine silver. Each link of the chain is individually formed and securely soldered. I've adorned the chain with five Kingman turquoise nuggets.
Chain is completely adjustable for the necklace to hang (including pendant) from 14 to 26 inches, to be worn as short or long as desired.
** The sheer beauty and rarity of this particular stone makes it, not only the perfect piece for anyone's jewelry collection, but also extremely valuable as the mine continues to be depleted. Since there is only one major mine for genuine White Buffalo, many dealers have resorted to purposefully mislabeling similar stones, such as: Howlite, Magnesite to sell their products as White Buffalo Turquoise.
You can usually distinguish white buffalo by the dark black matrix and spotting, sometimes mixed with brown and golden coloring.
The misused term will often describe white howlite, which has a noticeably gray matrix in comparison and is very plentiful. My advise? Google it, select 'images' and familiarize yourself with the differences. Once you see them side by side there is really NO comparison to the beauty of genuine white buffalo.

Some metals incur a natural patina over time. Although many people like the natural patina'd metal, others may find it undesireable. In most cases the original brilliance of the metal can be obtained by saturating a soft cloth in lemon juice and rubing the piece until any tarnish is removed. Another method which works especially well on sterling silver is to rub a bit of toothpast (paste, NOT gel) over the item with your fingers until the oxidation is removed. Then rinse well (brush out of crevices with an old toothbrush) and buff with a soft cloth. There are also products such as Brasso® which work well and are readily available. If you are hesitant to do this yourself, a local jeweler will usually be happy to oblige for a minimal fee.
All items are shipped in a small box, or a bag within a padded envelope appropriate to the size, shape and number of items purchased.
I am happy to beautifully gift wrap items upon request, for an additional four dollar fee.
