RARE Vintage ZUNI Sterling Silver Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace HUGE 178grms
Im proud to present this gorgeous Turquoise Bib Necklace made by Zuni husband and wife team, Valentino & Matilda Banteah. Valentino provided the silver work, while Matilda did the stone work. Hand-made with vibrant Turquoise and Sterling Silver, this necklace will be a treasured work of Art for its new owner. Its large and has some of the most vivid blue green turquoise on the market. Being over 40 years old and the stones still having this much vibrancy is a real treat. It doesnt get much better than this… The stones are all original and in MINT condition as they sit inside saw tooth bezels. All 163 stones are different and unique in their own way with some having matrixes and some not. The blue and green colors of the stones are bold and vividly stunning… I honestly cant say enough about them. The round pendant is very large and ornate, containing 76 stones situated symmetrically over a thick bed of silver. Valentino applied twisted rope between each circular row of stones and bordered the outer edge with silver raindrops. The top of the round pendant is soldered to a large connector which displays a large trapezoid shaped stone. The connector is able to bend freely due to the way it was made with a pin. The two side sections of the necklace contain two rows of stones. 1 row of snake eye and 1 row of petite point. Hand stampings, twisted rope, and raindrops were also applied to coincide with the pendant. Continuing upwards on this piece you will see wide flattened cable links. All of these links are soldered together with no need to worry about them pulling apart. Each flattened link displays a single snake eye stone. There are 20 total, 10 on each side. The hook and eye clasp chain is thick and sturdy with the links also being soldered shut. This item has not been cleaned or polished. It has been left in its original state. This work of Art by the Banteahs is a masterpiece, one that will last for years and be handed down for generations. Ive not been able to find a similar piece that even begins to compare. Be the new owner of this stunning piece to cherish and enjoy now…. And hand down to loved ones in the future. I will entertain reasonable offers…. Lets make a deal! Weight – 178 Grams / 6.28 oz.
