Here's an outstanding sterling silver and turquoise Navajo necklace that appears to have come from the Tobe Turpen trading post and shop. Turpen's family had been in the trading business for decades and during the 1960s boom years of the Indian jewelry business, Tobe Turpen enjoyed the success of supplying jewelry to many enthusiastic retailers across the country. People knew that Turpen had the REAL Native American jewelry, hand crafted by his many Native artists who sold only through his business.
This beautiful necklace is made with eleven oval genuine turquoise stones. Each is a high-quality cabochon, looking natural with just the inherent matrix nuances of the stones. Each stone in its setting measures about 1/4 by 3/8 inch.
Above and below the stones are silver scallop designs with twisting rope, tiny flowers, twisting stick dangles and raised silver beads. The background is oxidized for nice contrast with the silver. The open link chain has soldered links with a hook and eye clasp.
Necklace measures 16 inches long by 2 1/4 inches wide at centerpiece. Weighs 47.7 grams.
The back has two hallmarks. One is the artist's mark which is conjoined and looks like T G or T C or T T. The other is very small, hand-etched, and also conjoined...TT...the shop mark for Tobe Turpen.
Necklace is in excellent vintage condition. Shows light wear and use consistent with age.
