Early 1900s Turquoise Nuggets Sterling Silver Enameled Necklace

This is a circa early 1900s sterling silver enameled necklace chain with turquoise stone nuggets in graduated sizes. The necklace is marked sterling on the clasp. The chain is composed of small round links joining longer decorative links with enameling in the center. Some of the enamel is gone. there are 10 natural turquoise stones, 8 on the chain and 2 as a center drop. The stones range is size from 8mm up to 16mm.

The necklace weighs 14.1 gr. It measures 16" long plus a 1.5" center drop.

Condition: There is some enamel loss. Chain is tarnished and I have not attempted to polish it. Clasp is old but might be a replacement, because I suspect that this is an old Chinese export piece and would have originally had a different style of clasp. Chain also test positive for sterling grade silver content though.

If you like old natural turquoise, then this beauty may suit you.
