Santo Domingo Sterling Silver & Turquoise Jacla Necklace
This vintage Santo Domingo jacla necklace combines the contrast of sterling silver with the serene beauty of turquoise, boasting a total of 162 stones. On the necklace the turquoise stones graduate in size. 

The attached jacla, an embodiment of traditional prayer offerings, dangles from a sterling silver squash blossom bead—an emblem of prosperity and the life-sustaining squash plant. Further detailing includes sterling silver bench beads near the clasp, while hand-stamped silver spacer beads exemplify the artisan’s dedication to bench-made craftsmanship.
