Horace Iule Zuni Cross Necklace Handmade Chain
Fine early Horace Iule sterling silver cast cross is set with 7 hand-cut and polished turquoise gems. The stones are well matched, sky blue and original to the cross. The 2nd stone down from the top has an interesting silver pyrite matrix which makes the stone appear as a heart. I do not know if this symbolism was intentional but it's hard to imagine otherwise. The cross is offered on it's original, silver chain, each link of which was hand-soldered. Cross measures just over 3 1/8" long with it's bale and 2 1/4" wide. The so-called paper clip chain measures 24" end to end, can slip over the head but does have a spring-ring clasp also.
