Customer Question

I have a green turquoise squash blossom necklace, bought approximately 20 years ago at gallery in Old Town Albuquerque NM. It is sterling silver and the stones have not been treated. The marking on it is AL. I would like to know the worth and sell it. Thank you.
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
