A unique vintage pendant handcrafted in sterling and set with a goldstone* and malachite cabochons.
The pendant has a very ethnic look to it, I don't know if it was intended to be a cross or just decorative.
The sparkling center stone is bezel set with a twisted wire frame, hand cut and polished malachite cabs are set in bezels on each side, they are framed with the same twisted wire.
The design is embellished with small solid sterling beads.
The pendant could be Native American in origin though there are no defining marks.
The pendant measures 1.75" by 1&3/16", the goldstone is 15mm by 12mm, the malachite cabs are approximately 8mm by 7mm, it hangs from a n 18" thick sterling chain.
Excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear.
Unmarked, it tested sterling with acid, total weight is 15 grams.
An interesting vintage pendant with a great combination of materials.
