About this Piece

Sterling Silver

Sterling is an alloy of silver containing at least 92.5% pure silver (925 parts of 1000 thus the 925 stamp), the remainder is made up of a mix of metals (most commonly copper) used to make the metal workable. Pure silver is generally considered too soft to work with, although you can find silver jewellery at 950 or 980, even the occasional 99.9% fine silver, which can be work-hardened to increase durability.

Petit Point or Needle Point?

The use of very small cut pieces of turquoise, bezel set in a cluster, is often used in Native American jewellery (particularly Zuni jewellery). Teardrop shaped stones (cut round at one end and pointed at the other) is known as Petit Point, stones are pointed at both ends are Needle Point.
