Navajo ARNOLD BLACKGOAT Santa Fe Style 3 Strand Pearl Turquoise Heart Necklace

650.00

This belonged to a influential Santa Fe collector who got this about 10 or more years ago & has been locked up in a safe,until it was brought to me to sell.I will be posting more wonderful pieces,so please watch out for them!

Talk about Santa Fe charm!!!

 Beautifully displayed on 3 strands of various size & shape pearls,is a precisely hand stamped Heart pendant with the choicest cabochon of high grade,untreated green Carico Lake turquoise.Arnold is one of my favorite Navajo artists when it comes to stampwork..His work is always so accurate & never does he lose form.Ever!! Not all are at the level that this artist is & is not the easiest to pound through the metal & be right on target! 

It is given a scalloped perimeter & there are "hearts" within the main heart & since different stamps were used,gives a very textured feel.

The pearls are of 3 different  shapes & millimeters which add to the look..

This necklace has more versatility than you can imagine!!The cool thing about this necklace is 1) you can take the pendant off & put another pendant on the pearls,2)wear the pearls alone,3) wear the heart with strands of Navajo Pearls for a more sterling look,4)put the pendant on colored stone necklace strands! Now how many necklaces can you do that with??

The bale is nice & large (approx..16 mm) so you can fit something bulky into it.. It has a chain extender,so you can drop this longer ,by putting the clasp anywhere within the chain.

Take this from a more Western Cowgirl look, to a elegant black designer dress! Day to night~Wear this anytime,anywhere,anything!

Its feminine & has Santa Fe written all over it!
