Lee Downey Kingman Turquoise

$ 10,500.00

SKU: LD-F14-U17
One of Lee Downey’s beautiful butterfly motif buckles, this piece features a beautiful play of color among its remarkable materials. The base is hand-wrought sterling silver with 22k gold accent bordering, Kingman Turquoise wings, a hand-carved Tahitian mother of pearl body, and champagne diamonds set in the body and eyes. Kingman Turquoise takes its name from Kingman, Arizona, one of the oldest turquoise mines in America—it was first discovered by Native Americans more than 1000 years ago—and one that is known for the beautiful sky blue gemstones it produces. The turquoise used here exhibits a delicate blue-on-blue spider web effect.
