Vintage Royston Turquoise Navajo Old Federico Jimenez Squash Blossom Necklace:
*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

He received a
bachelor’s degree in science & art at the University of Benito Juarez in
He came to the USA in 1967 to study and work. He studied jewelry making & design at the University Community School.
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 his business.
He & his wife amassed a big collection of
Mexican jewelry: Pre Colombian, Colonial,
and Contemporary, as well as Southwest art like baskets, kachinas, Pottery, Navajo, Zuni & Hopi rugs & jewelry.
In 2008 He & his wife donated their Mexican collection & a building, to house it in to the city of Oaxaca, Mexico, & it is called "Museo Belber - Jimenez".
Now Jimenez lives in Venice CA, & designing his Line of jewelry, while his activities in the cultural community continue. He was a prior trustee of the "Millicent Rogers Museum" in Taos, New Mexico & “The Southwest Indian Museum “in Los Angeles, CA. He's currently a trustee on the board of the "Autry National Center" & "La Plaza De La Cultura" in downtown Los Angeles, CA. which opened to the Public in 2010.
*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!!
*Also-I am 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

I DO SHIP INTERNATIONAL FOR AN ADDITIONAL FEE!
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 parties concerned!
