A lovely Native American sterling pin set with genuine turquoise that ranges from blue to green.
The small cabs are cut in three different shapes, oval, round and teardrop and set in sawtooth edge bezels.
The center oval stone is framed with a twist of heavy wire as is the group of six round stones.
The teardrops form the border design, the final edge is scalloped with a crescent of plain round wire, a solid silver bead embellishes the edge where the crescent ends meet.
Very well made, the handmade pin has a wonderful slightly primitive look with the hand cut and polished turquoise stones that are not symmetrical.
Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear, it has a great darkened patina and secure safety catch.
Measures 1.25" square and weighs 6.6 grams.
Unmarked for silver content, the pin tested sterling with acid, it is signed with the initials RV, they are faint but visible in the photo.
A fine example of vintage Native American sterling and turquoise petit point.
