Beautiful Southwestern Native American Indian high-grade turquoise Sterling silver pin or brooch, stamped STERLING, and hallmarked D by Navajo artist JOHN DELVIN. John is mostly famous for his spiny oyster cabochons, although his stone and silver work are just as impressive. In the 1980s, along with other silversmiths, John formed "Teme", also known as Sunburst Handcraft Inc. A company that produces handmade Native American jewelry, located in Gallup, New Mexico. This pendant showcases a gorgeous blue-green stone with a busy copper matrix, set in a smooth bezel, and framed by a hand-cut silver, and filed border.
This piece weighs approximately 16.5 grams, and it's about 1 7/8" wide by 7/8" tall. Exceptional stone and silver work.
