925 Sterling Silver Hand Stamped Navajo Pearls Bench Beads Graduated Necklace. 32 Long, 198g Excellent+ Condition!
Please scroll to view all 12 photos. Absolutely stunning vintage Navajo pearls necklace, becoming harder to find these in such excellent condition. The largest bead is about 22mm (21.99 with my Mitutoyo digital caliper) in diameter, the smallest beads are about 10.68mm in diameter. There is a total of 77 beads on the graduated strand, to me a very lucky number. The strand measures 32.25 from end to end when laid out flat.They are strung on a sturdy sterling chain with a strong hook clasp. The rings and clasp are soldered closed so it won't come apart, though the necklace is long enough to easily slip over your head. On my postal scale it weighs 198 grams, I weighed it over and over and sometimes I would get 200 grams but I went with the lighter weight to leave room for error. Please note that this is just an estimate with the tools I have available! My postal scale is pretty accurate, though not as much as my jeweler's scale, my jeweler's scale just couldn't handle an item of this substantial weight. Another item I just had to have because it was so beautiful, and I spent a small fortune on this. I never even wore it myself as I tend to wear much smaller jewelry, and it was always very carefully stored for many years in my jewelry armoire. To my eye, this necklace is in superb condition with minimal if any signs of wear.
I consider myself a particular person and a harsh critic and to me this necklace really does look excellent. Please view all 12 photos to judge for yourself as I do understand that everyone's criteria and standards are different. The only thing I can find is some minor tarnish as it is sterling silver, but these beads can easily be polished to a bright shine by a jeweler or you can do it yourself if you're familiar with silver polishing. From a non smoking environment.
It's frustrating to see something you like, but no measurements or clear photos are given... If there is any kind of problem or error, please contact me so I can make it right. Please keep in mind that all pre-owned or vintage items will show some signs of wear or age if you really scrutinize them closely enough, it is impossible for them to look showroom new! Please see photos for details, I take extra time to take clear photos which I sometimes have to lighten to show detail.Perceived condition can be relative so please go by the p. Hotos and ask questions not already answered in the description if you are unsure.
Remember that some monitors display color slightly differently than others. On my monitor the color always looks pretty accurate or I will say in the description that the photo came out badly.
Unless I got the color completely wrong, like if I said it was blue and it was actually red, I cannot be responsible for slight discrepancies in the exact color tone. If you saw it and had to have it, so will someone else. I sell nice things at great prices with clear pics and painstakingly thorough descriptions and measurements.
