History: This piece was brought to us by Calvin Begay from his safe. Calvin has been with Lantern for over 30 years and is the Father of Southwestern Modern Jewelry. His remarks on this piece, "The stones have deepened in color over the years-they are Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. It's from the 50's from some friends who purchased items out of Nevada on their visits. I've had it for a very long time now." Calvin is letting this piece go and we are in love.
