Antique turquoise Tibet silver rare bib necklace. These antique Tibet necklaces are not even found in China any longer, and are very scarce here in the States. They were hand-made and have a sort of primitive look to them. The metal is crimped around the turquoise which shows signs of varying color. The last one we found for you there was no doubt the stones were turquoise. This one is a little harder to detect and our gem tester is not giving a conclusive reading. It may be that it was made with crushed turquoise stone, but they look like glass to me.
Although this necklace is substantial, the traditional Tibet jewelry can range much larger as seen in the one example we've included in our listing. The center of this necklace measures just over 4.5 inches wide. The adorned portion is 12.75 inches, with the total length being 21.25 inches. It has a hook and eye closure, with the hook being a newer addition. I believe these were generally tied on with ribbon. This is only the second traditional Tibet necklaces we have come across, and we're thrilled to have one to offer.
