Offering for sale a wonderful old brooch or pin, cast in sterling silver and so marked on back. It has lovely balls, twist half circles, and an outer circle of half balls with ridges. Mounted on this lovely circle are five red stones believed to be carnelian, they are lustrous and soft to the touch, with a slight opalescence. On the back is a fastener, in addition to a hanging loop if one wished to wear this as a pendant. This beautiful round measures 2" across and is in good condition.: there is one of the "balls" that appears flattened from age. This sterling silver has a lovely patina, I did not polish or clean it for the photos. No country of origin is marked on this, my guess is Mexican or even Native American artist. It has a great look.
