An interesting vintage artisan necklace incorporating natural turquoise nugget beads. The designer put in a few irregular shaped shiny pearls to offset the dark matrix in the dramatic turquoise nuggets. In between each bead is a small hematite bead. The clasp is sterling silver.
The designer also incorporated a Chinese vintage pendant to the necklace that can be placed on and off the necklace with a detachable bale. The pendant, which is probably older than the necklace can be worn along on a chain. The pendant is a form of turquoise.
