This is a simply stunning sterling silver and sodalite necklace from Taxco, Mexico. Sodalite is believed to activate the third eye and throat chakra. It has been used for centuries to enhance psychic abilities and develop one’s intuition. This vintage piece was made some time after 1970.
Laid flat this piece is approximately 16” long—the perfect choker length. The necklace is made up of 15 sterling silver and sodalite pieces, whose shape is reminiscent of bats. Each “bat” is approximately 1” long and is linked by a sealed sterling silver jump ring. There are 15 oval shaped sodalite cabochons, which have an approximate average size of 7.45 mm each. The royal blue sodalite stones provide a lovely contrast to the sterling silver. This piece is well marked on the backside of the clasp; it reads, “TAXCO MEXICO 925 / RSG / TS - 51”, however, I have been unable to identify the maker. The silver has developed a beautiful patina over the years and is sure to compliment any skin tone. This piece weighs approximately 115.50 grams or 3.70 troy ounces.
This necklace looks and feels fabulous on. This vintage piece would make an unforgettable gift or a fantastic addition to your jewelry collection!
