~Platero~The Necklace also comes with a Card that was provided by the Original Owner,
it has heavily yellowed over time, that she has had since the time of Purchase.
I believe this card to be perhaps some sort of provenance/or personal "Notes"
that was made at the time of Purchase. Owner referred to the Artist as being "Tony",
yet I thought the 'RDP' may have represented RICHARD or ROBERT PLATERO?! Owner also
disclosed that the Necklace was purchased on the Canyoncito Reservation.>>340 gm. OR 12 oz.!<<

STRIKING Blue, AMAZING Matrix!
This is simply the PERFECT Native American Squash Blossom Necklace! It's
HUGE, a wonderfully OVERSIZED Necklace,..Large as they were originally designed
to be, made with highest quality components, signed by a member of one of the
most Collectable Families of all Navajo Artists, & in EXCELLENT VINTAGE
CONDITION. If you are a collector of FINE Native American pieces, this is one
Necklace that you may not want to miss out on! MUCH DEEPER BLUE than the Photos
show it to be,..when they are this ULTRA DEEP, SUPER INTENSE BLUE, really hard
to capture! I hardly even know where to begin on this one, & honestly, it's
going to be fairly difficult for me to describe just what ALL sets it apart from other Necklaces, (especially when I have
another Necklace Listed!) Ha! For starters, the Length, you never see it, most
are about 25" to 26",..the GREAT thing about this, is if you DO
prefer them a little shorter, you can still have it shorter, much better than
if one was too short. It lies BEAUTIFULLY down your chest, (WITHOUT even
considering the additional Length of the Center Naja section), is a SUPER
GENEROUS 33 1/4"! With the additional
Length of the Naja, it appears as an over 35"
Necklace when worn, too! The Pieces are SOLID, none of that cheap, thin, 'sheet
metal' crap that BENDS if you sneeze on it,..but SUBSTANTIAL, UNUSUALLY
SUBSTANTIAL pieces for the Style,..AND these are no Tiny Stones either, BIG
& BEAUTIFUL BOULDERS,..as a matter of fact, ALL OF THE STONES, (except maybe
for the 2 Smaller ones on the Tips of the Naja & maybe 1 or 2 others), are anywhere
from 1" - 1 1/4" LONG, TOO! This
is a WONDERFUL Necklace, not "Flimsily made", & HANDMADE BEADS
strung onto a really FLEXIBLE & Durable, Heavy Duty FOXTAIL Chain. And OH
GOSH, I almost FORGOT!!! What I REALLY LOVE about this one: The Top Row of
Beads on the area BEHIND the Naja, is not a Solid Strand, but 2 SEPARATE
STRANDS hooked to a "U" Shaped "Pivot"? that allows it to
move & Turn however is Best for them to lay PERFECTLY for your individual body
type, (if you are now confused, just email me! Ha!) I've only seen this Feature
used 1 other time in all these years, (and THAT was on a Necklace valued at
about 12 Grand, & it REALLY makes a difference, they ALL ought to have this
AWESOME Feature! TONS of Sterling, & those oh so desirable MORENCI Turquoise
stones,..chunks of GLEAMING SILVER PYRITE FLOATING IN A SEA of GORGEOUS BLUE
will have everyone in envy of your MORENCI MASTERPIECE! Necklace is in
wonderful Vintage Condition & the STONES are as close to PERFECTION as
you'll ever find!! This is a SUPER BEAUTIFUL & VERY WEARABLE Necklace! You
will LOVE the OVERALL BEAUTY of it,..the design, color, massive size,..and oh
those FABULOUS STONES! As
usual, the Turquoise is EVEN MORE Beautiful than my Photos seem to show! The
intense Beautiful Blue Color of the Morenci is always difficult to show, &
this Turquoise is SUPER GORGEOUS, with those chunks of to be High Grade
Morenci- all of everything you look for in the better quality MORENCI is there,
intense color, CHUNKS of Silver Pyrite, even some of it has an almost
"Lavender" that can be found in the rare & collectible Bisbee,
just STUNNING, especially combined with the added detail of the MASSIVE
Sterling RAIN BEAD Detail, smooth BEZEL Settings! STONES ARE IN EXCELLENT
Condition, & MASSIVE, ULTRA CHUNKY! MUCH MORE TURQUOISE than you usually
see in the average Squash Blossom, even a LARGE one! It's BEAUTIFULLY made, one
of those "Timeless" pieces that will always be in style, & bring
you a LIFETIME of Wear AND Happiness! The ULTIMATE Addition to your Native American
Jewelry Collection, handmade & hallmarked "RDP" by Navajo Artist
'PLATERO', & available beginning at only .99 Cents with !!
Morenci Turquoise was mined in southEastern
Arizona, in Greenlee County. It ranges in color from Dark to Light Blue, with a
very unique & unusual matrix of irregular Iron Pyrite Matrix, (also known
as “FOOL'S GOLD”), that looks like
SILVER when polished. The name "Morenci", is derived from the large
open pit Morenci Copper mine where much of the Turquoise from it was considered
to be of the “LUNCH BOX” variety, meaning it was carried out by the workers of
the Mine. Morenci Turquoise is very well known, as a matter of fact, it was
even one of the 1st Turquoises from the United States to be placed on the
market, & is becoming almost impossible to obtain because the Mine is now
depleted. Due to its High Quality, & also the fact that the mine is now
closed, Morenci Turquoise is considered to be quite collectible!

Due to so many problem of being able to
get Jewelry items out to many Countries, & all the rules & regulations,
I have found that it is better to ship 1st Class, (not that much slower,
either!), which is relatively inexpensive in itself, but then I ship all items
REGISTERED, with RETURN RECEIPT. This pushes the cost up greatly, & most of
the time costs MORE than I actually charge you. Any extra over that amount, I
always cover the cost & pay the difference myself, but if it happens to be
a great deal less for whatever reason, I will refund any remainder of your
money you paid to you! All my INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS are VERY HAPPY CUSTOMERS!
