Vintage Export Chinese Natural Turquoise Nugget Necklace. This beautiful strand is in lovely condition.The necklace comprises individually knotted natural turquoise gem stones. There was also a lot of Zuni jewellery in amongst it and some antique Chinese pieces. From the nugget shape of these beads and those we have seen elsewhere we are of the opinion the stand is an old Chinese strand. There is some age associated with the strand but we cannot say when it was made. The turquoise is mainly a deep duck egg blue with some greener stones and some with dark matrix.
The strand was originally threaded on a flimsy thread and the clasp was missing. We have had the strand professionally rethreaded on durable thread, double knotted and secured with a new simple sterling silver bolt ring clasp. The strand is graduated with the larger stones measuring 12mm x 9mm and the smallest 8mm x 6mm long. The necklace is 540mm long and weighs 34.7gms.Please note this item is original and not a copy or modern day reproduction.
