Please do not expect store bought perfect new items! We will never guarantee our items to be in perfect condition, if items are clearly marked, we do not have it acid tested, especially if markings include designers markings.If natural hairline internal cracks in stones, loose settings (that normally happen over the years) bother you, or expect perfect, then you do not want Vintage. Even jewelry that is brand new tends to have flaws. Anything distracting we will note in our listings, anything damaged we do not list.
Of course we may miss some flaws even after examining and we do apologize. We have researched all items, but are not experts, and have some great local resources, but please ask questions or share your knowledge too!
What a piece of wearable art! Centerpiece is set within Heishi shell strand, along with tiny turquoise nugget spacers near the shell pendant and finished off at ends near clasp. Pictures will offer a much better description, so be sure to view all, the pictures actually complete the description. The clasp on the necklace is unmarked, not attracted to any of our magnets, but we have not tested, a more secure finding rather than the fishhook style.
The necklace opens to approx. 22 inches from end to end, the shell measures approx. 2 X 2 inches (measured at widest areas), the earrings hang approx. 2 inches long, measuring from the top of the wire to the bottom of longest point on the shell. Together, the necklace and earrings weigh 62 grams.
We have coins in pictures for better estimate of shell sizes. They are in very, very good condition, small minor natural imperfections that are very hard to detect with the naked eye when wearing, but not uncommon to have slight flaws since these are all handcrafted/hand cut shells and stones, shells always vary in size and condition when left in original state. But, you will probably not find another like this one!
Turquoise is very hard to capture in pictures as the exact shade, but the pictures we have listed are darn close, turquoise has a lot of green hues as well as blue, depending on lighting. We do leave most of the descriptions up to the pictures, so be sure to view all.Please ask any questions and we will be happy to get back to you as soon as we can! We feel our listings and pictures will give you enough information to make your decision, so be sure to view all pictures! All condition of items are in very nice, working condition and may only need a gentle cleaning, mainly due to dust from not being worn or stored away for quite a few years. As a general rule, we leave all vintage and antique jewelry in their current condition since most desire the items to be received in their lovely vintage or antique condition.
