Sterling silver, real Purple Oyster Shell, and Coral.
Necklace measures approximately 29-7/8" long and weighs 60 grams.
This is a very exquisite necklace that must not be overlooked! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand strung out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Purple Oyster Shell and Coral beads. The necklace consists of: 2-mm Coral round beads and Purple Oyster Shell wheel beads that beautifully graduate, allowing the largest center beads to measure 12-mm and the smallest beads at the end to measure 5-mm. Each end of the necklace is completed with a silver cone and bead for a stunning finish. The cones are stamped sterling.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
