Product Description

 

34″ LONG NAVAJO PEARL NECKLACE BY ROSE MARTIN


Navajo Pearls are traditionally made sterling silver beads. Silver beads are a traditional art form for Diné silversmiths, and the beads have as many expressions as there are artisans. … Making the beads is a time-consuming process. Each bead begins with silver that has to be melted, rolled and cut.


Sterling silver

Is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum of 925 purity.


Oxidized silver (black coloring in the silver) is a process that many jewelers use to give sterling silver a black patina. It gives the jewelry an antique or tarnished look. The process consists of taking clean sterling silver and using a chemical (liver of sulfur) to treat it to speed up the tarnishing effect.
