195 Grams Amazing Sterling Silver Native American 61 Navajo Pearls Bench Beads Necklace - image 1 of 15

Sale From Southern IL, this is an Amazing Sterling Silver Native American Necklace of 61 Graduated sizes of Navajo Pearls/Bench Beads, weighing in at 195 Grams. It is 23 1/2" End to End, and the largest Bead in the front center is 1 1/2" across, the largest I have seen in these necklaces. The beads which are strung on a silver chain, look like Flying Saucers and the etched design is clear and uniform on each of the beads from the smallest to the largest. I bought this from an antique dealer but he bought it from an individual in Southern IL and said it was handmade. He said that is was very dark when he got it and he cleaned it bead by bead himself. The necklace has a hook and eye closure like you see on most of these Navajo Pearl necklaces and it is in good working order. The bar on the hook side still has lots of oxidation and it’s rough. It looks like there was some sort of marking on one side, maybe that's where the sterling mark would have been, but I can't make it out. On the other side, there's a little flat end cap that is also a bit dark, but on one side there is some sort of embossing that may be part of the maker's mark, and it looks like "SW." I am not positive about that mark, as it could be EW, but faint as it is to read, it is there. I have only seen this particular style of Native American necklace at the Antique Shows in Nashville and IL, but they are priced way out of reach for me to be able to buy for resale. This is a heavy necklace to wear, but is loaded with character and for the amount of time I have read that it took to make just one of the beads, no wonder they are so expensive. I was just so happy to run across one in Southern IL, and that is where I have had some other really nice Navajo jewelry originate. I am just amazed at this set of Sterling Navajo Pearls and I believe you will be too. A Great piece to add to your collection of Native American Jewelry.
