My 'Adrianna' Necklace has 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. Turquoise specimens like this are becoming increasingly rare (see below). The entire necklace was hand fabricated in my home studio of sterling and 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 pendant portion drops approximately 3.75 inches long from a 2.5 inch wide, hand forged festoon.
About White Buffalo ** The beauty and rarity of this stone makes it, the perfect piece for anyone's jewelry collection, also increasing in value 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 stones of similar coloring, such as: Howlite or 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 jasper, which has a noticeably gray matrix in comparison and is very plentiful. My advise? Google it, select 'images' and familiarize yourself with the visual differences. Once you see them side by side there is really NO comparison to the beauty of genuine white buffalo.
