Amazing Museum Quality AUTHENTIC Native American Indian Turquoise Chunk Estate Necklace
The necklace is made of large hand polished turquoise nuggets and shell heishi shell ending with a Sterling silver shepherds hook and eye closure. These turquoise nuggets are sized from large, 1-1/4" long and 3/8" across in front to smaller towards the back. It's almost impossible to get this quality of turquoise today. When I see pictures of Native Americans from the turn of the century, this is what they wear..LARGE necklaces and massive jewelry, worn by both men and women. I have a bracelet from the same estate to list later.. These were old pawn pieces. Measures: 26" long and weighs 214 grams (or 7.50 ounces!!), with 100’s of carats of Turquoise from various mines. These were popular in early 1900's. This necklace is in perfect vintage condition. The necklace is in excellent vintage condition, there is no damage. The colors are just amazing and I am sure you will love this bold, unique and striking statement.
This is truly a magnificent collectible example of Native American jewelry. This Style of neck-wear dates from the earliest finds in excavations. The Native Americans had these beads at their disposal because of their location and made turquoise very desirable. This is a substantial older necklace that is beautiful.
