This is a listing for a vintage Navajo necklace. It is a simple and bold piece, strung with extra large nuggets of turquoise. The beads are strung on strong beading wire to support their weight. Two large hand wrought Navajo bench made sterling beads and a substantial sterling lobster claw finish the necklace and provide a secure clasp.The necklace is 18 inches in length and makes a statement with one strand of huge stones and no accent beads or pendant to distract from the natural beauty of the nuggets. It weighs a substantial 148 grams, which reflects the large amount of beautiful turquoise used in this statement piece. The largest nugget is approximately 1 and 1/8th in length and 7/8th inches in width. The strand graduates to smaller nuggets near the clasp measuring 5/8th inches long. The color of the turquoise is a wonderful saturated light to medium blue with a golden brown scattered and webbed matrix and a soft warm tumbled polish.
The shade can be found in several mines, Sleeping Beauty, Cripple Creek and Royston come to mind. It's a wonderful "to go" piece with an earthy understated beauty.
