This classy Necklace showcases a Navajo-made old pawn Turquoise & Sterling Silver Pendant, estimated to be 50+ years old. The oval Turquoise Stone is a striking light blue in color, with gold and lavender matrix. It is set on a plate of polished Sterling Silver that has intricate notching around the edges. The Pendant has a handcrafted Sterling bail and full Sterling back. The piece is not signed, but this was common for older pieces and the workmanship declares its heritage. We’ve paired the Pendant with two strands of color-matched Turquoise in varied shapes, including Barrel, Drum and Bamboo cuts. The Turquoise Stones are interspersed with 7-by-17mm faceted Vintage Amber, which reflects the light and mirrors the gold tones in the Pendant Stone. The Turquoise is highlighted by Sterling Silver, including 8-by-16mm Leaf Beads, 6-by-12mm Urn Beads with Flowers, and 7-by-12mm Ornate Ovals. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Rounds and a Sterling Silver Toggle Clasp, and adorned with a Sterling Kokopelli Charm, a Native American icon that embodies the American Southwest. It weighs 95 grams and is 21-1/2 inches long, plus the Pendant, which is is 2-3/4 inches by 1-1/4 inches with a 5/8-inch bail.
