Antique Export Chinese Natural Turquoise Bead Necklace. This beautiful strand is in lovely condition.
The necklace comprises individually knotted natural turquoise gem stones. The turquoise is mainly bright duck egg blue with richer turquoise stones here and there and some with dark matrix.
The Export Chinese filigree clasp is simply marked Silver. The strand was originally broken with its pretty clasp attached.
We have had the strand professionally rethreaded on durable silk thread, double knotted and secured with the antique clasp in place. The strand was not long enough as some of the stones must have been lost so new round turquoise beads were added next to the clasp to make it a wearable length. The original stones are similar in size measuring around 12mm long and around 10mm wide. The new round turquoise beads are 6mm wide.The necklace is 430mm long.
