This is a Vintage Southwestern Tribal Navajo Sterling Silver Turquoise and Coral Chip Mosaic Necklace Pendant of a bird. The design of the bird is inlay set with turquoise and coral shards in a technique called Shiprock. The piece dates to the C1970s. The bail on the back is open so the pendant could be taken easily off the chain. The piece is not marked but tests positive for sterling silver. The bird is beautiful and you can tell by the smoothness that it that it has been handled and touched a lot. It has nice patina as well. The piece is artisan hand made and weighs 26.2 grams, and measures 2 1/8" x 2 1/8". The condition is excellent and has not been cleaned.
