A chic and dramatic, yet informal and wearable, turquoise necklace.
Colbert Joe Sr, was an uncle and mentor of the esteemed jeweler, Al Joe; this Colbert is his son, and Al’s cousin.
Sadly, Colbert Jr. passed away at a tragically young age, so this is one of the only pieces of his we have left.
But, it is a beauty!
Hand cut of stabilized Royston turquoise, the wonderful variety of rich green color, interspersed with earthy brown matrix, is gorgeous.
Meticulously graduated in style, the organically formed disks are traditional, but also quite contemporary in effect.
Each disk is separated from another by a tiny heishi bead, of the same green, Royston turquoise.
Sensational with sweaters, suits, dresses, whatever, this necklace is a stand-out.
It is attached to a chain, so you can vary the length, from a 14″ choker to a longer, 20 inches, or so, adjusting it to different necklines.
With its thin disks, creative, wavy edges, and wonderful color, this necklace has a fabulous look.
