For your consideration is this beautiful Indian necklace. Most likely Navajo in origin and sugilite. It has a beautiful leaf and coil design against an oxidized background. Signed JY Sterling. I do not see Jimmy Yazzie using this so I am unsure if this is his work and can't find this specific mark in my books. Definitely a quality artisan.
The necklace measures 17 and 1/2 inches in length. The center design measures 2 inches by 5/8 inches across widest points.
The piece is in excellent condition. All stones secure. I believe it is circa 1980s.
