Lovely Ray Tafoya Native Amer. Indian Sterling Silver Turquoise Pendant Necklace

Regular price $78.00 $0.00 Unit price per


Presented is a lovely vintage Native American Indian sterling silver turquoise
necklace. This piece was made by Navajo artist Ray Tafoya circa 1976-1994. The
pendant is set with a beautiful piece of sky blue turquoise in an oval cabochon
shape, measuring about 21 by 11 millimeters. The stone is surrounded by a
sawtooth style setting and ropetwist and swirl designs. The pendant is on a
chain made up of fine sterling silver tube beads, with a barrel style clasp,
though of course you can wear the pendant on whatever style of chain you prefer.
The chain really being included just because it came to us with the pendant, but
it is not a Tafoya piece.

This piece is in excellent condition. The turquoise is well set and intact,
no chips. The chain has no kinks or breaks. The clasp functions well and closes
securely.

The pendant is signed RT and is tested and guaranteed sterling silver. 

The chain measures about 18 ¼ inches long. The pendant measures about 1 ½
inches long including the bail/loop at the top.

The necklace weighs 7.3 grams.
