Very big vintage Santo Domingo Native American necklace with slightly graduated carved free form turquoise tab beads with traditional silver cone terminals, and hook and eye clasp. 1970s or earlier. The color is amazing, variegated and with great depth. Strung on fine monofilament. It weighs 204 grams. 24 1/4 inches wearable length and 1 1/4 inches wide at center. The center is about 33mm wide. Excellent condition. There are three beads with losses, pictured in last image. They are not at all noticeable because of the dense construction. Display form is life size.
