This is an unusual vintage art deco style tab necklace with inlaid Sleeping Beauty turquoise set in sterling silver. Each of the thirteen tabs has four small channel set slabs of turquoise which are separated by inlaid sterling silver. The inlay increases and decreases in size on each side of the center tab for a lovely symmetrical and balanced look. Each tab is separated by two sterling silver beads. The rest of the chain is comprised of five round beads alternating with a single long narrow bead creating visual interest. The necklace is slightly adjustable and closes with a typical hook and eye clasp.
Although this lovely necklace is unsigned, it is unique in both design and craftsmanship. The matching earrings (DR 1523) would make a perfect accompaniment.
Condition: Excellent – original condition.
Provenance: Acquired from a private collector in New Mexico.
