Such a deep rich stone is this flat cabochon of Royston turquoise set in a sterling silver pendant by Teresita or Jerry Qunitana. Apparently they shared a signature stamp!
Teresita was the wife of Joe H Quintana, but Jerry was not a relative according to Bille Hougart.
Anyway, this pretty piece of 1970s jewelry is nicely made and very wearable!
The sterling silver setting is 2 1/2" long and 1 3/4" wide. A sheperds crook can accomodate a strand of beads or heavy chain.
Buyer pays $15.00 for shipping and insurance.
