What a fun and special mix of multi colored turquoise beads and various brown nuts and seeds including three rudraksha prayer beads, carved Chinese "Shou" and floral wood beads and a finely carved bead of a Chinese male figure, possibly an antique bead, with symbolic elements front and back. I'm not qualified to interpret the symbols but it looks to be an important carving at 35mm (1 3/8") long. Weight of the necklace is 61 grams, 2.1 ounces and total length is 17 1/2", which I can extend with chain if needed. The clasp is marked sterling and has been tested.
What a special necklace this is, obviously vintage yet still stylish today! And all those yummy beads in turquoise and browns, the whole lot being 'strung' on sterling rounded foxtail chain....to last forever!
