Fantastic and unusual sterling Toucan necklace. Handcrafted circa 1980 this beautiful necklace is a long string of malachite and amber beads with a sterling Toucan pendant, inched sterling with a beak inlay in malachite, coral and spent oyster. Southwest made, I believe the hallmark is Native American but I can't track down the hallmark.Simple j clasp with lovely sterling end caps, nice long necklace and wonderful quirky design - great handcrafted vintage statement necklace.

About this Piece

Sterling Silver

Sterling is an alloy of silver containing at least 92.5% pure silver (925 parts of 1000 thus the 925 stamp), the remainder is made up of a mix of metals (most commonly copper) used to make the metal workable. Pure silver is generally considered too soft to work with, although you can find silver jewellery at 950 or 980, even the occasional 99.9% fine silver, which can be work-hardened to increase durability.
