Kenneith Jones used a superb combination of teardrop-shaped cuts of red spiny oyster to create this special squash blossom necklace. This red spiny oyster shows excellent color, cut and polish. This is an ideal necklace for the smaller woman looking for classic design in the appropriate relative size. The Naja is set with sixteen teardrops of shell. Another fourteen teardrops of matching spiny oyster are set in the blossoms which run up the sides of the necklace and are decorated by starred buttons and wire work. All of this gleams with the high-polish beads and silverwork which complement this rich red shell. You'll love the comfort of this necklace; no unnecessary heft and no stiffness--just a suppleness to the necklace that wears quite comfortably.
Hallmarked with a J under crossed arrows and stamped Sterling on the back of the Naja.
