This top of the line sterling silver turquoise pendant created by the Navajo silversmith Kirk Smith is amazing! Kirk Smith was a student and former brother-in-law of the late master silversmith Harry Morgan. Kirk Smith's work is considered collector and investment quality and every Native American jewelry collection should include a piece or two of Kirk Smith jewelry!
This Kirk Smith pendant has a large Pilot Mountain Turquoise stone which is a deep sky blue color with dark matrix. The stone is set in a deep gallery bezel and surrounded with superb silver work. The 2-1/4 long pendant is attached to an extra large silver bale covered in fancy silverwork, large enough to handle beads or a necklace up to 5/8 inch (or 14mm) diameter. The pendant and bale reach a total combined length of 3-1/4. The pendant with bale weighs 44.2 grams.
Brand new in perfect condition. Stamped sterling and has Kirk Smith's hallmark. Certificate of Authenticity included and gift box included.
Kirk Smith passed away tragically on September 17, 2012. His artistry and vision will be sorely missed.
We currently have a dwindling selection of Kirk's jewelry available. But once they are gone, they're gone! With the recent price increases in both turquoise and sterling silver in the last few years, Kirk's beautiful pieces would be an excellent investment not only in terms of their high quality turquoise and precious metal but because of the acclaimed artist who created them. Don't miss your chance to add some of Kirk's fine jewelry to your Native American Indian jewelry collection.
