Large, Vintage, 17 Inch, Navajo, American Indian, Sterling, Turquoise Necklace For Sale
This is an extremely attractive, large,vintage, 17 inch, Navajo unsigned, sterling, turquoise necklace strung on silver chain. I would say that it is from the 1950's. It is in very good condition with no chips or cracks to the stones. The handmade silver beads are also in very good condition with no dents or other problems. The necklace hangs well on the neck and the beads are strung well, not to loosely or too tightly.
The necklace weighs 4.5 ounces on a digital postal scale and, though substantial in weight, is comfortable to wear. The turquoise stones are a little more blue-green than shows up in the pictures. They are pretty uniform in color and are very attractively framed in identical sterling designs with exceptional silverwork.
The smallest pendants are 1 1/4 inches by 1 1/4 inches. The next larger pendants are 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches. The largest pendant at the center of the necklace is 1 3/4 inches by 1 1/2 inches not including the dangle which is an additional 1 1/4 inches by 5/6 inches.
This turquoise necklace is very versatile and can be worn with denim for a casual look as well as a dress for more formal wear. It will serve you for years to come because it is timeless in style as well as being very well constructed. I have not polished the piece and it has a light patina.

I have been an Indian jewelry dealer for over ten years and a collector of Native American jewelry for much longer; I do not think that the stones in this necklace have been treated or stabilized. Look at the pictures closely and you will see webbing, matrix, and no sign of a plastic resin coating. As I answered the person asking, this is a necklace from about the 1950's, unsigned, heavy, great workmanship. Treating or stabilization of stones did not really become an issue until much later. This reason alone is why purchasing old Native American jewelry is a much safer bet for getting quality materials than buying much later items. I stand behind thetribal jewelry that I sell.
