We have never seen older Navajo handmade beads with inlaid malachite before, so these are quite special!  The silver is heavier than handmade sterling silver necklaces made today at 106.3 grams.  The fifteen larger beads on the bottom each have inlaid malachite around the circumference and are also stamped on each side.  The smaller beads are between 10mm and 8mm large. 

This necklace came from a vintage collection of Native American jewelry we purchased, and our estimate is that this necklace was made in the 1980s.  It has been lightly polished to keep the patina that comes with age.  Items in this collection are priced significantly under market.

Size: 23.5" L - Largest bead is 1" Diameter
