This is a substantial NAVAJO pearls or beads necklace. A beautiful perfect length 24 necklace. A classic length to wear by itself or to wear with a big pendant, one of these big pendants with a wide stamped bail which need a big necklace! The NAVAJO artist JANE MARIANO hand made big beads, 12mm diameter, this is 1/4. Then she made the traditional sterling silver cones at each end of the necklace. I think the closure is just exquisite, she paid so much attention to details. The old style hook is hand made, bigger, wider, around 2mm/1/8. And it hooks up in a lovely plate with holes in shape of a double arrowhead, absolutely lovely. The nice finishings make the difference. The necklace is very well made, it has a nice feel in the hands. It is a sweeeeet traditional piece with the finest details. The necklace is 24 long. The cones are 1 1/4 long. The beads are 12mm diameter. It WEIGHS 60 grams. MADE BY the NAVAJO artist JO MARIANO. STAMPED STERLING, on the cones. The item “NAVAJO PEARLS BEADS NECKLACE, 60gr J.
