UNISEX Vtg Native American TURQUOISE Navajo Bear Spirit PENDANT and NECKLACE
All pictures are part of the description. This Native American turquoise necklace and pendant was made with natural turquoise mined here in the United States. The turquoise is dominantly blue in color. The blue is vivid and beautiful, catching the eye immediately. The necklace is made with large turquoise beads, in shape of disks that are well polished and smooth, interspersed with very few sterling silver Native American bench beads. The large pendant exhibits a chunky piece of turquoise, impeccable, with no fissures at all, in a charming lighter blue color enhanced by a brownish copper color, so natural and appropriate with the stylized shape of the bear that this pendant represents. The turquoise bear is bezel set in a sterling silver frame that keeps the bear firmly attached to it. The bear spirit, wise, protective and powerful, makes this unisex necklace extremely attractive while the blue turquoise of this natural stone brings light and brightness to any outfit. All the silver in this necklace is sterling silver, not marked but acid testing positive to the 925 silver content. Condition is excellent vintage, ready to wear. Total weight of the necklace (including the pendant) is 142.37 grams.
Length of the necklace is 21.5. The beads are slightly graduated from 15 mm diameter to 10 mm at the back, close to the closure.
Thickness of the beads varies between 7 mm and 3 mm. The pendant is 65 mm E-W x 35 mm N-S x 8 mm thick, measured without including the bale.
