This is an estate necklace. This is a Native American made pendant on a sterling silver chain.
It has a beautifully inlaid Zuni design featuring genuine sleeping beauty turquoise,
lapis lazuli, spiny oyster, beautiful green gaspeite, red coral, and black onyx.

This is a very petite pendant!
The bale opening is wide and will accept a chain up to 3/16" thick.
That gives you the freedom to exchange chains for different looks.

ERA: 1980's.

MARKS: On the back ...."Sterling" and signed by the silversmith artist "VC".
I have checked with my sources and do not know this artist's stamp.
***AS AN ADDED NOTE: The practice of signing Native American jewelry
was not popularized until about the 1970's ..... usually with stamped initials or signatures

CONDITION: Nicely polished and ready to wear. Extremely light patina on the sterling.
No chips to the inlay. Beautifully made. This is a very good artist.

SIZE: Please note this is a very petite pendant. The sterling silver marked chain is 16" long.
The pendant itself is small.... 1" inch long (from the bale) and about 3/8" wide.
The inlaid section is about 9/16" high by 1/4" wide.

Your purchase will arrive securely packaged in a new gift box. Thanks so much for visiting my shop.
