Vintage Brown Heishi Shell & Bird Carved Necklace, Sterling Silver Beads, MOP, 13.5"

$ 45.00

Vintage Southwestern/Native American Brown Shell Heishi & MOP Bird Fetish Necklace with Sterling Silver Navajo Pearl type Bead Accents and liquid silver straw beads and small silver accent beads.  The necklace is 14.5" with a barrel clasp.  The fetish birds are mother-of-pearl- two natural white with black painted eyes and two are dyed light teal.  The silver beads were tested and are clearly real silver.  This is 1970's at best guess - could be slightly earlier.   This came from a PA estate sale - from a large collection with many pieces being from designers and others very vintage. Very good condition with some typical vintage tarnish/patina on the silver beads.  See photos.  Lot. Loc. Win.10.2616.G3.5 (LD 1/26/17).

Thank you for stopping and checking us out.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.

I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.

I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.

Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
