This is a BOLD Vintage Silver Cross that was hand crafted by an American Indian silversmith. I believe (from looking at the back side) this piece to have been 'sand cast', which is not terribly common for a religious pendant. In addition there are hand stamped Sun Ray designs (symbolize constancy) on all 4 terminals. Set in a sawtooth bezel in the center of the cross is a light blue turquoise cabochon with a small vein visible.
Native American Cross pendant MEASURES 1 3/4 x 1 1/8 Inches including the hand crafted applied silver loop for a pendant chain. VINTAGE southwestern turquoise jewelry is in VERY GOOD CONDITION! ...has not been polished recently & displays some Patina/Tarnish that could easily be removed if so desired. Primitive Cross is CLEARLY Marked "STERLING" on the reverse but no hallmarks to indicate the silversmith ~ artisan who created it.
Would make a SUPER Gift - for a Man or Woman of any age and a GREAT LOOKING addition to your Native American jewelry collection!
