Stated as sterling silver per the previous sellers jeweler. There are a total of 17 nice quality bright blue turquoise nuggets, none cracked or damaged. Necklace is 212 g, 26 long.
I cant find any damage at all. This piece strikes me as very feminine. It does, however, seem that someone cleaned this at one time.
Of course, it is up to each owner but I was told you should NEVER clean jewelry like this that has acquired a patina, as it reduces the value quite a bit. Its nice, clean state is also why it is so inexpensive for the quality of both work & stones. Patinas will come back, however, over time.
