This is a fine circa 1900 antique 16.5" long graduated polished turquoise nuggets linked chain necklace with gold filled clasp and linkage. There are no markings but the metal tests as gold filled. The turquoise stones range in size from .25" up to the 1" long largest center bead. There are 25 beads total.
Condition is good. The stones color has aged to varying shades of blue green to green. They are naturally slightly irregular.
Nothing beats the look of old turquoise, and I especially like turquoise when pared with gold colored findings.
