Vintage Santo Domingo 8 Strand Turquoise Heishi Necklace 32 Inch
This is a listing for a vintage Santo Domingo 8 strand necklace strung with rich solid blue turquoise heishi and accented with dark mahogany brown shell heishi. It's strung on it's original sturdy and secure cord and finishes with 4 sterling silver bench made beads and a traditional hook and eye clasp. It's an impressive 32 inches in length, so can easily slip over the head without using the clasp. But a clasp does allow someone to slip on a wide bailed pendant, which is always nice. It weighs a substantial 92 grams.

The silver beads have a warm aged unpolished patina. One cone has a small spot which appears to be from a previous silver test.

The heishi are hand cut, drilled, rolled and polished and the solid shade of blue. The beads are refined with a wonderful silky finish. Length is 5mm and width is 3mm.

The cord stringing created a flexible fluid drape when wearing. This is a stunning necklace with a subtle understated beauty. The item "Vintage Santo Domingo 8 Strand Turquoise Heishi Necklace 32 Inch" is in sale since Tuesday, August 21, 2018.
