A striking necklace from 1950s! These Vintage turquoise beads display vibrant hues of blue with black marbling and white flecks. The knotted beads are graduated, increasing in size toward the center of the strand. The 14kt clasp has lovely fluted petals around a large, oval turquoise cabochon. Four pink rubies frame the turquoise, adding to the fantastic design. The necklace is versatile, able to be worn with the clasp behind the nape of the neck as the beads graduate or with the clasp as a centerpiece, the beads tapering as they reach the spectacular clasp. This necklace would be a phenomenal addition to any turquoise collection!

Condition: The necklace is overall in excellent condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. The turquoise beads, cabochon, and rubies are intact and securely set.
