Silver and Turquoise
Sterling Silver and Turquoise
Paula says - "The workmanship on this Filipino made necklace is very beautiful. Everything is in perfect condition. Who made this necklace?
"A knowledgeable friend said this looks like old Scottsdale Silver work that silversmith John Montieth was making in Cebu, Phillipines. I worked for him for a SHORT while. Both while he made stuff here, and when he and Lily started making jewelry in Cebu. None the less, quality was there. I think some of it will be collectible, just like some Nicole stuff made in the 80's.
"By using the chain alone, this necklace is adjustable from about 19" to 24", but if you fasten the hook between the decorative links you can go as short as 16".
The attached tag is stamped 925 PHILIPPINES.
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!!
