This beautiful necklace is a classic example of the jewelry made by Dan Simplicio. There are many who attribute almost anything with coral and leaves to him, I do not make attributions lightly. I have been working with Native American jewelry for about 25 years now, and I also seek the advise of others before I attribute a piece. The consensus is this is the work of the master himself. Unmarked silver with nice coral and what looks like Morenci mine turquoise. Each eleent measures about 2 3/4" by about 1 1/4". The entire necklace is about 16 1/2" long with a hand made chain. Weight is 78 grams. Excellent vintage condition, a true collector's item.
