Antique Turquoise Bead Necklace with Gold Beads and Clasp

About

Yellow gold and this specific shade of blue turquoise have been in fashion for over 3,000 years. It is the blue of the sky and the Mediterranean sea. It is the yellow of wheat gleaming in the late-afternoon sun. It is appealing to us, these two colors, on the most primal level. This 18" necklace is composed of 42 extremely high-quality natural and precious Persian turquoise beads. The beads are 6.98 mm and 6.12 mm and are not strung in a graduated fashion. The original silk string from circa 1920-1930 was decayed so the beads have been restrung on new, thick silk cord in *exactly* the order in which they originally appeared. 18k gold beads are strung between each of the robin's egg blue stones and a ribbed 18k clasp completes the necklace. There is no damage to any of the beads and they possess a high polish. A hallmark on the clasp bears the three crowns within an oval frame indicating a Swedish origin. A person of any gender could wear these beads anywhere in the world and be at the very height of timeless fashion. A man could double the strand and wear it as a bracelet. Gemmy blue turquoise of this fine quality is exceedingly rare and the demand for beads such as these far exceeds the supply.
