1970s Navajo Turquoise Sterling Silver and Shell Graduated Bead Necklace

Shipping to United States: Free
Sorry, this item has sold.

This gorgeous vintage necklace is just the piece you need to complete your southwestern look! FREE SHIPPING within the USA too!

The necklace was made by a Navajo Indian tribe in Arizona, USA. The beads are made of real turquoise, sterling silver, dark shell Heishi, and melon shell. The total length of the necklace is 18 inches long.

The graduated beads on this necklace are absolutely stunning in person! The shiny dark shell beads constrast nicely with the lighter melon shell and vibrant blue/green genuine turquoise beads. The beads are widest in the center front of the necklace and gradually get more narrow toward the clasp. The cylindrical center front bead is made of sterling silver and has pretty flower or sunburst designs on it. This silver bead measures 3/4 of an inch wide, and 3/8 of an inch in diameter.

The hook clasp is also made of sterling silver, and is stamped "AZ" for the region in which it was mad. The silver cone-shaped pieces by the clasp have "sun ray" designs on them made up of three lines that fray out from a center point.

This quality item is in excellent vintage condition and would look great paired with an embroidered peasant blouse and your favorite jeans!
