The Southwest never looked so good in this beautiful colorful homage necklace to Christianity. There are 18 genuine gemstone crosses beaded along the necklace chain, alternating with nuggets of genuine Southwest turquoise. The stones include quartz, onyx, jasper, carnelian and several others we don't know.
In the center, there's a lovely old sterling silver cross. It's etched on the front, plain on the back. It's unmarked but has been acid-tested for sterling silver, along with the toggle closure.
The necklace measures 28 inches long. The cross is 1 1/8 by 2 inches. The gemstone crosses on the chain are 12mm wide. The necklace weighs 52 grams. It's in excellent vintage condition...no notable flaws...just natural gemstone nuances. Beautiful handmade piece, circa 1970s.
