NECKLACE, SILVER BEADS AND TURQUOISE TEARDROP PENDANT

THIS AUCTION IS FOR AN OLDER SILVER BEAD NECKLACE WITH A LARGE SILVER TEARDROP PENDANT WHICH HAS SEVEN INLAID TURQUOISE STONES

This vintage necklace is a mix of round and cylindrical antiqued-silver beads, threaded on a silver chain, with a hook clasp. The fifty-eight round beads have a 1/4" diameter. The twelve long cylinder beads measure 3/4" long and 1/4" wide.

The antiqued silver metal pendant is a large teardrop shape that has seven oval set-in stones. The colors of the stones are turquoise veined with black. Largest stone is 3/4" long by 1/2" wide. The back is flat. The pendant has a nice weight.

A closed and looped bale holds onto the necklace. (If there's the desire to do so, it looks to me like a jeweler could open the bale to free it from the necklace.)

This was a gift to me (by my husband), purchased in Colorado quite a few years ago. It was not worn much at all, and has been carefully stored.

The pendant is not signed and does not have the "925 Sterling" on the back . However, the beaded necklace, itself, and the pendant with turquoise stones looks like good quality and is really beautiful . The necklace beads and the pendant and stones sure look like sterling silver and an authentic Native American/Navajo design to me ! But, I obviously can't be 100% sure and the selling price
