This stunning Diné of the Navajo Nation sterling silver necklace has a decidedly dynamic motion of waves rolling along. Each silver loop carries the motion along. Seven rare, deep red coral cabs accent the beauty of the powerful silver waves. The necklace is secured with handmade silver chains at both ends with a simple hook and loop.

What can a wave symbol mean? One can agree that a wave is unstoppable, a force of nature that sweeps over everything in its path. It indicates strength and inevitability, but also a lack of thoughtful discrimination and futility of resistance. One can think of a wave as a symbol of strength, power, happiness, and prosperity.


Condition: very good condition

Provenance: this Wave-like Silver Necklace with Coral Cabs is from the collection of a client
