Lovely Native American necklace, fine marked and tested sterling silver chain from which flow five large medallions of silver leaves and tears with large slabs of turquoise, stabilized of course due to size, and a pendant suspended from the center. The turquoise has a lovely dark matrix which is probably colored as much of the turquoise has a lighter matrix which the artist would darken to make the stones more beautiful. The necklace measures 20" around and is in very good condition. Circa 1980, marked on the back with an engraved JN which flow together, we have been unable to find an exact match for this mark in the books. Very impressive necklace and a great length, is looks great on and the turquoise is beautiful.
