Beautiful vintage saucer bead squashblossom necklace. Made with sixty three (63) hand made 12mm - 13mm saucer beads which includes the one soldered to the sandcast naja. It has fourteen trefold beads, seven to each side, that measure slightly over 1 1/2" long. All strung on a silver box chain necklace with a hook-n-eye clasp soldered on the chain. The sandcast turquoise naja displays the Fleur De Lis symbol with what appears to be Pilot Mountain turquoise with black and dark red matrix set in the center and at each terminal in smooth bezels.

The naja measures 3" by 2 1/4" with the complete necklace measuring 23 1/2" long end to end. It weighs 125.3 grams (4.42 ounces) and is unsigned sterling silver. It's either a 1940's era that's been restrung with a more secure chain or a reproduction from the 70's. It has one bead that has a dent and the bead attached to the naja has a slight ding. Other than that,  it's in very good condition with a nice patina build. $878.95
