This Diné of the Navajo Nation eight-strand coral necklace consists of small natural coral of varying sizes, polished to a beautiful sheen. The coral is in tubular shape with rounded ends and beautifully polished. The ends are tied off and covered with a silver cone. A four-inch silver chain is attached for additional length.

It is easy to feel the value of this deeply colored coral and silver necklace. Arranged neatly in cascading strands that are impressive by the sheer mass of color, this necklace flows in a natural way. Silver cones provide further elegance as the cap ends of each strand.

Although this necklace is unsigned, due to its composition, we acknowledge this necklace to be made by a Diné artisan of the Navajo Nation. It is clear, however, that the artist crafted it with care and vision-for the result is something outstanding and sophisticated that any individual could be honored to wear on any occasion.
