Lovely Native American necklace of sterling silver Navajo bench beads with five graduated size turquoise and silver pendants. No maker mark on this necklace, it is in very good condition, circa 1980 or older. It has had an extender chain added which is not original to make the necklace longer, this could be removed by your jeweler. The turquoise is probably stabilized for strength and has a beautiful dark matrix. The necklace with extender measures 20" around and if the extender chain is removed would be 14", this may have been a necklace intended for a child originally. The turquoise color is very appealing and is highly polished with lovely patina.
