Can’t find any silver markings on it but it looks and feels and weighs like it is Silver. Any input Would be great.

    I agree. Not Navajo and IMO crafter. I believe the silver tone beads are Asian, maybe Afghani.

    Agree and lapis or sodalite chips. I don’t see any metallic so guessing sodalite.Can anyone read the metal slices next to the coral? It’s stamped with something.

    Faux coins; they're stamped. I'd be thinking Afghani or similar.

    That’s what I think on the striated beads. Could be crafter but now thinking strung there.

    The striated beads and silver cones are available at Thunderbird supply and other suppliers.

    I’m sure they’re available pretty much everywhere as a commercial bead.

    A very nice contemporary home craft or Asian necklace, imo. No way is it Navajo.

    A lot of those turquoise 'heishi' beads are made in Hubei Province, China, and these disc beads look like a lot of the turquoise that has been coming out of Hubei over the last few decades. Hubei turquoise comes in a large range of colours, shades, and qualities. Much of it can easily be mistaken for US SW turquoise.

    I love that coral, which also looks East Asian to me.
