Exquisite vintage Art Deco / Navajo Native American 1920s sterling silver dragon's breath necklace! The pendant has a large jelly opal with faceted side set in a sterling silver frame and connects to double circle sterling silver links with a jelly opal in the center. A simple hook closes the piece and is hallmarked Sterling on the back of the pendant. The colors flash a deep pink and red orange with fiery flashes of purple blue with movement. A rare, very collectible and hard to find necklace!

Dragon's Breath was created in the very early part of the 20th Century and is a man-made art glass used by Native Americans at that time. The art glass cab, called a jelly opal, is a magical stone and the colors a classic orange, purple, pink and blue. They are ever changing with movement and have a fire like quality unequal to many stones.

Measurements: 15"
Circa: 1920
Hallmarks: Sterling - Navajo design
Condition: Very good to near mint. The sterling bears a lovely patina with no chips or nicks to the jelly opals. Two of the smaller jelly opals have slight indents near their bezel setting when viewed through a high powered loupe but are in the manufacture of the stone..mentioned for accuracy.
