Offered for sale: 29 1/2 inch Sleeping Beauty turquoise and heishi necklace with Sterling Silver tear drop shape pendant measuring an additional 2 3/4 inches in length with chip inlay.
There are 82 graduated Sleep Beauty turquoise tabs separated by shell heishi in this necklace. I obtained the Sleeping Beauty turquoise from the site holder many years ago. Even then good Sleeping Beauty turquoise was getting harder to find. This Sleeping Beauty turquoise is a light aqua blue color with very little matrix. What matrix there has been left in it original color, white. Also used in the necklace is natural shell heishi. The silver beads mixed in with the turquoise are vintage and are Sterling Silver. The beads have been tested.
The pendant on the necklace is a 2 /3/4 by 1 5/8 Sterling Silver tear drop shape pendant with chip inlay. This pendant is older and qualifies as vintage. There are no marks on the pendant, but the metal tests as Sterling Silver.
