This gorgeous vintage hand inlaid turquoise shell necklace was created by an unknown Santo Domingo artist. The inlaid shell centerpiece measures 3-1/2 inch wide and 2-3/4 inch tall. The necklace measures about 24 long end to end. Strung on original cotton twine. The exact age of the necklace is unknown.
The matching inlaid shell earrings are missing their findings, but I can supply you with new sterling silver french hooks or vintage screwbacks for non-pierced ears (as shown). Let me know which you prefer. The shells measure 1-3/4 inches wide by 1-3/8 inch tall.
This necklace is from my personal collection. (I am beginning to downsize my collection.)
Excellent vintage condition, with no damage or missing pieces.
You can purchase the optional glass collector case with it for an additional charge (to cover shipping).
