This lovely necklace is a work of art and has everything you could possibly want from a piece of Native American jewelry! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand strung out of 12 Karat Gold Filled along with, real Purple Oyster Shell beads. The necklace consists of Purple Oyster Shell wheel beads that beautifully graduate, allowing the smallest beads at the end to measure 5-mm, and the largest beads in the center to measure 12-mm. Each end of the necklace is completed with a 12KGF cone for an incredible finish. The cones are stamped 12KGF. The earrings perfectly match the necklace, conisisting of 8-mm Purple Oyster Shell wheel beads.
12KGF is as good as gold. The color will never fade, change, or wear off. It is 12K gold on top of brass and other metals, which create a gold tone with a finish all the way through. 12KGF behaves the same way as gold.
