JSP testing solution was used to verify all precious metals. A Presidium Duo Gem tester was used to verify the natural gemstones. The gemstones were acetone tested for color fastness. This item was examined using ultraviolet light and a microscope. The gemstone is Natural not Lab Created.
Mexico adopted the eagle head mark (post-1948) and later changed to a letter and number system (post-1980's). This piece can be dated 1979 or later.
