Native American Indian Dyed Red Mother of Pearl Chunks & Turquoise Chunks Sterling Silver Single Strand Very Old Necklace
$295.00 This gift of nature is so intense with color and traditional Native American Indian lore that it just screams 'wear me"...This necklace is from probably before the 30's, and I am sure was a ceremonial piece... very old and very traditional. It seems to be holding up very well, I have not re-strung it to preserve the authentic value. A perfect execution of textures, colors, shapes and size. The necklace has chunks of dyed red mop with accents of turquoise with small hand crafted shell heishi in between. The mother of pearl is loaded with shades of vibrant red/orange and they are filled with natural open fissures. The turquoise are smooth polished nuggets with natural matrix and a magnificent color. The necklace measures 26" long and approximately 1" wide and weighs 145.2 grams. The clasp is a hook and eye tested sterling and strung on sturdy white silk cord.
The necklace is in excellent vintage condition, Circa 1930. There is no damage to anything. This looks awesome worn alone or with another strand of coral or turquoise beads...it's perfect!
There is something to be said about the natural elements of the earth, so tiny, being so precisely, and painstakingly strung on this beautiful necklace. Absolutely enchanting! Its significant length and pleasing colors will make this a necklace you will enjoy for years! Great to layer with other NA pieces, especially the other one I just listed . Excellent condition.
