VTG Zuni Multi Stone Raised Inlay Sterling Bib Necklace by Ronnie Calavaza
1970s collectible Native American vintage looking more relevant than ever in this sterling silver multi stone raised inlay lavalier style medallion necklace by New Mexico Zuni artist, Ronnie Calavaza. Each of the three round inlay links consists of a flower form combining turquoise, coral (in two of the medallions), and mother of pearl all set over jet. No two flower medallions are alike, but they are all set within a sawtooth bezel and partially surrounded by a beaded border. The center medallion, comprising the pendant portion of the necklace, is slightly larger and is linked to a five-piece silver fringe. This necklace is signed and is in great vintage condition with no issues or flaws that I can see.
Necklace Length not including bib/ pendant portion: 19-1/2 (49.5 cm). Pendant/ Bib Length Including Fringe: 2-1/4 (5.7 cm).
Pendant/ Central Medallion Width: 1-1/4 (3.2 cm). Marks: R Calavaza Zuni, NM. Vintage and/or antique merchandise may have some degree of visible wear and/or patina. This is considered normal and can be a part of the overall appeal and charm. I do my best to mention any specific condition issues. All items are described to the best of my knowledge.
