Santo Domingo Pueblo is one of the largest, most populous and most prosperous of the Rio Grande Pueblos, This Fantastic Santo Domingo Treasure Necklace received its name from mixing Gemstone Treasures to their Bird Fetish Necklaces amongst the Chiclets.

These Sacred Birds, as seen in this necklace, are stylized and called "Flying Hawks".

This Amazing Treasure Necklace is in Excellent condition! There are no chips or cracks, just nature's perfect inclusions. The overall tone is rich and deep like the colors of Autumn.
