A Sterling silver and desert ironwood pendant necklace by Nicholas Gambino for the White Hogan Shop, Scottsdale, Arizona, circa 1970’s


This splendid modernist necklace is another outstanding example of the superior design and craftsmanship abilities of the White Hogan shop’s silversmith’s. Nicholas Gambino began working full-time at the White Hogan Shop in 1971. This necklace, likely made in the mid to late 1970s, is an exceptional combination of unique and striking modern design and meticulous traditional Navajo silversmithing. The necklace measures 14 1/4” in length measured from the top of the handmade silver link chain to the bottom of the pendant measured while lying flat on a table and

it is 23 3/4” in length from tip-to-tip when completely opened up. The large silver and desert ironwood pendant is 2 3/8” in height, 2 1/8” in width and is a hair over 1/8” deep.


The beautifully-handmade silver chain has 58 separate links, each approximately 3/8” in length and it closes with a handmade silver clasp. The chain and pendant are both in excellent original condition and the necklace is properly signed on the back of the pendant with Nicholas Gambino’s capital letter initials “NG” and it is also marked with the White Hogan Shop’s hogan insignia and “Sterling”. A gorgeous necklace that is completely easy to wear anytime, with just about anything at all.
