Vintage Mid Century Chinese Knuckle Bone Turquoise Sodalite Bead Opera Length Sterling Necklace.
This good looking piece is comprised of knuckle bone shaped Chinese turquoise......in that fabulous shade of aqua....strung into sections of three alternating with sections of larger size round polished sodalite beads and interspersed with sterling spacer beads. Love the combination of color that both of these gorgeous stones bring together in this necklace. Great longer (opera) length necklace is a combination of hand knotted (between the lapis beads) and simply strung. Sterling silver spring clasp and findings.
Necklace is stamped Sterling on the clasp.
Necklace measures just slightly over 30 inches long (opera length).
Turquoise stones vary in size a bit and measure 1/2 inches (12.5mm) to 5/8 inches (15.5mm) long by 3/8 inches (9.25mm) to 1/2 inches (12.5mm) wide. Lapis beads measure 9mm in size.
Necklace weighs 97.1 grams.
Excellent vintage condition. Great!
