This necklace offers a rare and very beautiful Navajo sterling and turquoise pendant. It is bold, elegant, and beautifully made by a master Navajo craftsman, with elaborate sterling feather and large raindrop embellishments. The stone is a lovely sky blue color with interesting silvery matrix. I have no exact provenance as to the mine this stone comes from, perhaps from the Sleeping Beauty mine, or the Kingman mine. Many of these great mines have closed now, or are seldom working. This pendant has been in my collection for a number of years and now it’s time to share, with something of a heavy sigh! Pendants like this are highly prized and sought after these days because so few are available and their value just goes up accordingly. This pendant hangs 2″ from the necklace band. I have added sterling silver Navajo made bench beads and 4 small squash-blossom charms, also rare, vintage about the 30’s or 40s. There are 2 large stone slices and turquoise rondelles and a simple sterling hook clasp, and now this pretty 18″ necklace is finished for your pleasure!
