Lady of mystery

Genuine silver Mercury dimes accented with rare Sleeping Beauty turquoise

For all of the Mercury dime’s fame, no one is entirely sure who served as the model for its famous face. Though sculptor Adolph Weinman insisted it was meant to represent Lady Liberty, popular opinion held that it resembled Mercury, the Greek god of commerce. In any case, it’s believed that Weinmann based the image on a bust he had made of his neighbor Elsie Stevens, the wife of poet Wallace Stevens. But no one knows for sure.

Embrace the mystery with this pendant. Fashioned from a real silver Mercury dime, this piece is accented with another wonder –– Sleeping Beauty turquoise. This gorgeous blue gemstone comes from a mine located near Globe, Arizona and is named after the mountain range where it is located, which from a distance is said to resemble a sleeping woman with her arms crossed. This pendant is certain to make heads turn.
