A beautifully-stamped vintage Navajo

silver pin set with five Blue Gem

turquoise stones, circa 1940’s

This gorgeous pin is very well-crafted in an oval shape with a finely scalloped and stamped outer rim. The interior design features a large greenish-blue, oval turquoise stone from Nevada’s famed Blue Gem mine surrounded by four smaller Blue Gem stones arranged in a stylized “Morning Star” pattern.

Between the stones is complex perfectly executed stampwork in a four-pointed star pattern surrounded by six sets of paired arrows pointing in opposite directions. The overall effect is of balance, elegance and harmony, all extremely important virtues in the Navajo world view. The pin measures just shy of 2 3/4” wide and 2 1/8” in height. It weighs 26 grams or 7/8 of an ounce and it is in excellent original condition.

Price $425
