Vintage Royston Turquoise Navajo Old Federico Jimenez Squash Blossom Necklace For Sale
*PLEASE READ! Federico Jimenez makes Quality
pieces, holding HIGH QUALITY NATURAL Pieces of Turquoise. The Natural Turquoise
that has NOT been treated is more Rare, Collectible, & Valuable, but along
with Natural Turquoise especially in Older pieces, you'll often see tiny hairline
areas, and/or pitting, etc. On this Necklace, only AFTER CLOSER examination, I
found 2 or 3 areas that have the 'hairline' cracks, but you have to look HARD
up close to see them, I don't think they will even be noticeable when worn,
PLUS ALL the Stones are STILL VERY TIGHT & SECURE in their bezels settings,
too! Be sure to always Read Listings & view all Clear & Detailed Photos,
& what if anything not seen in Photos will always be described. ANY
Questions? Feel Free to ask any & all questions BEFORE offerding! Thank you! Val

In 1970 He & his Wife Ellen Belber
Jimenez took a trip to the Southwest & fell in love with the American
He admired the Indian craftsmanship & technique so much that he was
inspired to start a collection of Folk Art. He first opened a gallery on Main
Street in Santa Monica, CA & then moved to Abbot Kinney Ave. in Venice, CA.
His most important Gallery was opened on Montana Ave, in Santa Monica, CA where
he specialized in Antiques & Collectibles, carrying Folk Art from Mexico,
Latin America, & the Southwest.
Important collectors & Museums were costumers of his during the 25 years of
He & his wife amassed a big collection of

*An AMAZING FIND! You can be one of the 'Elite Few' to
own a coveted 'Federico Jimenez Necklaces'. These can be sold for upwards of $10,000 &
more, just depending on Size Weight, Length, & Type of Stone used! This is an AMAZING, RARE OPPORTUNITY to own one of
Federico's Finest Pieces ever made, this is NATURAL Turquoise, appears to be
Blue Royston to me, my second choice would be Blue Gem Mine Turquoise, but is
it EVER BEAUTIFUL!!
having a hard time finding anything that states definitively that Federico is or is not Native American, the MAJORITY of Online Sellers of his items
have him listed as Native American, but in my opinion my research showed he was
born in Mexico, but even the sites that sold his items as Native American made
stated that, so I am just REALLY confused now, but if you collect his items you
already know how in demand his pieces
are, regardless of what his ethnicity is. Good Luck!! Val
♥Shown worn LONGER in some Photos,
(shown with an Extender!)
♥(Could EASILY be worn Longer by
attaching a Box Clasp Bracelet of Compatible size,
or could easily accommodate any type extender simply
by attaching a different type Clasp!)

I HAPPILY WELCOMEINTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS!
Due to so many problem of being able to
get Jewelry items out to many Countries, & all the rules & regulations,
I have found that it is better to ship 1st Class, (not that much slower,
either!), which is relatively inexpensive in itself, but then I ship all items
REGISTERED, with RETURN RECEIPT. This pushes the cost up greatly, & most of
the time costs MORE than I actually charge you. Any extra over that amount, I
always cover the cost & pay the difference myself, but if it happens to be
a great deal less for whatever reason, I'll refund any remainder of your money
paid to you! All my INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS are VERY HAPPY! It's a great
method, is about the safest possible, &always works well for both
