Estate Lapis Lazuli Collar Necklace with 14kt Yellow Gold Beads and Chain



This Lapis Lazuli and yellow gold collar is made for royalty! Lapis lazuli has been loved by humans for over 6,500 years in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, China, and Rome. When you see this beautiful color and pyrite marbling, it makes sense why! This necklace is definitely a collar at 16 inches long and rests right along the collarbone. This stunning Lapis Lazuli necklace features 39 tablets of natural lapis lazuli strung on a blue silk cord, with 14kt yellow gold beads and Italian made chain with a spring ring clasp. This is a necklace from the 1940s so this is considered "Old Material" from Afghanistan. Please note that this estate piece of jewelry was restrung with gold-colored end-caps and the 14kt yellow gold beads do have a few small dents from being loved. You will find photos of the dents in the photos and will find that it does not detract from the beauty of the piece.
