This is a Vintage Southwestern Navajo Old Sand Cast Sterling Silver and Turquoise Pendant Brooch. There is a bail at the top for your favorite necklace chain so that the piece can be worn as a necklace. The turquoise cabochon stone has good gold matrix and is hand bezel set. The secure safety pin clasp on the back is tight and the piece measures 3 inches wide and 2 inches high. It weighs 44.3 grams and is heavy. The hand made piece has no hallmarks or metal purity marks but acid tests sterling silver. The brooch has good patina as well. The stone is deep turquoise in color and excellent matrix.
