Vintage Navajo design sterling silver and turquoise beaded turquoise necklace, featuring a winged eagle with a turquoise accent gemstone accent. The necklace is quite short, like a choker style but could easily have extra chain added to increase to the length. The detail in the silver is really amazing, each feather in the eagles wings really stands out. The eagle is looking away to the left. The pendant is not stamped as sterling but was checked by laser and is confirmed as sterling silver. The artist has not signed their work either so the maker cannot be identified. The rest of the necklace is made up of sterling silver hollow beads with beads of natural turquoise, the silver beads have taken on a wonderful aged patina. It is a very wearable and dramatic necklace that will be a talking point wherever you go.
Dimensions are as follows:
Height of eagle 4.6 cm x width 3.5 cm x thickness 7 mm
