WOW! This is without a doubt the most gorgeous necklace I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Amazing in every possible way, this liquid silver necklace will take your breath away. From the moment you touch the silky luscious strands of pure silver that cascade in a waterfall effect, you'll fall in love. The tiny beads feel like liquid silk in your hands. Undulating and absolutely gorgeous with 100 soft flowing strands of hand strung tiny sterling Heishi beads gracefully gathered with curved sterling cones. The purity and fineness of the liquid silver makes this necklace a timeless classic. It is so versatile and wearable with jeans or dressed up with a silk turtleneck or blouse. It is absolutely stunning on. This is a formidable work of beauty and artistry as the Southwestern Native American Navajo artist has painstakingly strung over 32,400 individual teeny tiny beads to form this beauty. The strand ends are hidden on either end under elongated and curved cone caps. The necklace is marked Sterling in several place, on both cones and on the clasp. It is in excellent condition and measures 30" from tip to tip. Weight is 135.3 grams of solid fine silver. To give you an idea of how tiny the beads are, there are approximately 12 beads to an inch. This necklace originally retailed for over $1900.
