This is an exquisite vintage sterling silver pierced earring & brooch (or pendant) set in perfect working condition, 19.5 gram weight.(This design is often copied but never looks just like the original). All pieces have a vintage patina. I will clean on request. It is an Aztec motif that depicts the 4 arrows & shield* It looks like modernist jewelry. The brooch also has a bail so that it may be worn as a pendant. The back of the pieces are clearly marked 925 which denotes sterling silver. However, the pin also has a silver hallmark but I am unable to make out what it says All 3 pieces are solid silver with turquoise inlay. The shield & arrows are so finely detailed, the craftsmanship is amazing. The brooch measures 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". The earrings each measure 1 3/4" long x 3/4" wide. This is a refined & quality set that will only go up in value. Usually when you see these symbols depicted they are not this finely portrayed. *Note: The 4 arrows & shield are associated with warfare & the Aztec's tribal god Huitzilopochtli as represented in the Borbonic Codex.
