go to link This is a vintage artist signed Southwestern sterling silver necklace with a large azurite malachite cabochon centerpiece. The chain is marked sterling, full work. The centerpiece has engraved maker/artist mark of DK 9 (see photo). All parts are jeweler tested and Guaranteed solid sterling silver. The centerpiece is handmade and the stone is hand cut. The chaining is vintage rope chain. The cabochon is quite large and measures 33.33mm across the top east to west shoulder to shoulder by 23.81mm north to south directly down the center of the stone. ( 1 5/16″ x 15/16″) There is some light surface abrasions from age when viewed with a loupe but this is such a busy, colorful stone that any age wear is not noticeable or eye obvious when on the neck. Size end to end is 14 7/8″. The rope chaining is 1/8″ across. Weight is 23.5 grams. This is a lovely showy vintage statement necklace for everyday use. The centerpiece is very strong and well made by hand.
