Vintage Turquoise Rondelle
Paula says - "This is not Native American made - it is likely an import imitating a Native American style. The spiderweb Chinese turquoise beads are very nice.
"A rondelle, or roundel bead, is a bead that is not spherical but flattened somewhat, like a saucer."
Old Auntie T had a great eye for vintage Native American jewelry and collected for many years. She often purchased highly collectible, important pieces that had one small stone missing or a very minor area of damage.
When she passed away, she left the items to her niece who admittedly had no interest in them yet was reluctant to let them go. We gladly restored these items to their original glory and are offering them with respect to Old Auntie T. Good eye, Auntie T!!
