Highgrade Boulder Turquoise is one of our shops specialties and definitely one of our favorite styles to cut. We have practiced a long time to get it right and develop our own styles. We try and think outside the box with some of our designs, inspired by the beauty of the natural untreated stones. This Royston Highgrade Boulder Turquoise Pillow- Cut Necklace is one of these inspirations. From raw rock that we mined then hand cut and polished here in our shop.
This Unique necklace beautifully shows off Natural Royston Turquoise in all its splender! The rare highgrade deep blue tone turquoise with bright green highlights mixing in a "waterweb" to "spiderweb" pattern through the rich "butterscotch" to "chocolate" matrix or host rock. The stark contrast of turquoise to matrix also is a perfect compliment at the same time creating picturesque scenes in the stone. Our "Pillowcut" is inspired by the natural beauty of boulder turquoise. Like a river through the desert Royston Turquoise flows through such a beautiful matrix, rich in color and character. We decided to utilize all of it making our own hand cut, stylized, smooth and chunky beads to add to the design of these unique necklaces. The stone and soft leather are easy on all the senses on this is a rare one of a kind statement piece.
