1950's Santo Domingo 3 Strand Turquoise Necklace 30 Metal Free. This genuine, old Santo Domingo necklace is a real statement piece! It may be as old as 75 years, but it's ready for the runway today.The gorgeous blue turquoise tabs', or beads are everything you image turquoise to be. Between the turquoise beads are beautiful multi-colored shell beads called "heishe". Santo Domingo Jewelry is famous for its hand-rolled turquoise heishi beads.
Are very fine, some of the best heishi on the market. A very lovely, collectible necklace. The necklace is 30 long, strung on natural cotton twine, with no metal what so ever.
The deep blue of the Heishi and the gorgeous tan colored matrix throughout the tabs is just superb. Makes me think of the Kingman Turquoise, although there are so many different types. There are a total of 108, mostly spear shaped turquoise tabs or beads. Total weight is 191 grams and is 30 inches long.
Traditionally, heishi (from the Santo Domingo word meaning shell) referred to shell beads. It describes any tiny, handmade beads of various materials.Heishi is possibly the oldest, ancient form of bead making in North America. Making heishi beads is a labor intensive process and the price of heishi is determined not only by the types of materials used but by the symmetry, smoothness and thinness of the beads.

First off, let me tell you not to be surprised at our prices. Because we keep our prices low, it certainly doesn't mean that we don't carry superb quality. Since I became permanently disabled in 2008 (from my career as an It specialists, a job I loved), I had been searching for something to make the days not so long and lonely until my husband John came home. He is a high school teacher, and a very busy one.
A student advocate and one of the best teachers there are in our wonderful state of New York. My husband was the one who suggested I start sharing some of my antiques and collectibles I had been.....
Lol, for more than 40 years. I can't tell you how lucky I was to have one of the best and brightest collectors as my mother!! My passion has always been vintage jewelry, especially art deco. The character, the style, the beauty just speaks to me.
Most of our pieces are never marked up more than 20%, which is why we can't do the big 50% off sales. That being said, I will work with each and every customer to try and manage their budget and where I can bend, I will. Please let me know how you like my items and any and all suggestions are welcome about new inventory or your own personal quest for certain items. I cannot guarantee that all items have come from smoke free homes, however I will do my best to ensure that every item is cleaned to the best of my ability. In jewelry, items may have some scratching or signs of previous wear.
I will do my best to indicate when an item has defects that would affect wear. I would be most pleased to service you in any way I can.
