Description This appealing silver and turquoise Pueblo necklace is of a style popular during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The necklace consists of turquoise and silver beads with silver cross pendants. Christianity was introduced to the area by Franciscan priests from Spain; the necklace is reminiscent of the Spanish Catholic rosary.
