This necklace almost looks Native American, the design as well as the use of turquoise and coral. The biggest difference is the carved silver, this is very much the Tibetan style. Whatever the style or design at the end of the story this is an amazing piece of jewelry. Though it may look heavy because of small beads it's busy without being weighty. It's the perfect length for tunics and white cotton blouses. Better than a Squash Blossom!
