Vtg Native American Turquoise Heishi Shell Coral 6-Strand Necklace Navajo
The turquoise and coral are small nugget beads and the heishi are small hand cut round beads. The heishi beads are used as spacers between the turquoise and coral beads. The turquoise is greenish in color and the nuggets are well matched in size.

The green turquoise looks lovely with the red coral accent beads & brown heishi spacer beads. There are 4 1/2 of sterling silver beads on each end of the necklace with an oyster clasp for closure.

The necklace is not marked but the silver beads tested as coin silver or higher using a GXL Next Tester which is non-invasive. I would date the necklace to the 1970s or earlier. I did not find any damaged beads but there could be a few on close inspection.

There could be surface scratches on the necklace. Overall, the necklace is in excellent vintage condition with expected wear. Materials: Turquoise, coral, sterling silver beads. This is a very traditional and older Navajo turquoise nugget necklace. It has the warm look of vintage Native American jewelry.

The necklace is a nice weight with a substantial look. It is a great necklace to mix with other Native American necklaces and jewelry.
