Beautiful antique mid century Heishi shell and turquoise tab necklace with a (c.1960s) sand cast silver Naja pendant.

This breathtaking vintage Santo Domingo turquoise necklace measures approx 44cm long (74cm around). The necklace contains 27 graduating chunky turquoise tabs. The largest tab measures a wonderful 2cm X 1.5cm. Resting throughout the turquoise are superior hand cut white to brown heishi shells. 

The long necklace appears to still be on the original hemp string, this would indicate the necklace being made during the 1950’s or earlier. After that they were typically strung on wire for the tourist trade.

The large Naja pendant is sand cast Silver with an inset turquoise stone, the Naja measures 6cm long and 4.5cm wide. It is likely Pueblo made from the later 1960s.

This stunning antique South Western necklace will be supplied in a StormCrowSilver gift box.
