Product Description
$ 925.00

A beautiful 3-piece Zuni Petit Point scalloped choker from the 1940's. The type of turquoise is unknown and the variations in the color of the turquoise are from a natural patina that develops with age. The chain is created with oval, sterling silver links and finished with a simple hook and eye clasp.

Petit Point are hand cut, tiny, round, oval, pear or square shaped stones that are clustered to form a unique design. Zuni Petit Point jewelry began around 1920-1930 and is unique to the Zuni Indians.
