Native American Leaf Pendant

Native American Vintage Jewellery

in stock


Lovely sterling silver Native American necklace. Light, hollow sterling silver bench beads with a large sterling silver pendant, sawtooth bezel set turquoise in a leaf setting, a large and ornate bale. Clasp is a sterling, twister wire toggle clasp, strung on coated wire. The pendant and beads are Native American but the clasp is unusual so I am assuming it has been restrung at some time.

Spectacular vintage condition!! Shows mild wear commensurate with age, no dings or chips, will come with some patina, as level of polish is a matter of taste.

About this Piece

Sterling Silver

Sterling is an alloy of silver containing at least 92.5% pure silver (925 parts of 1000 thus the 925 stamp), the remainder is made up of a mix of metals (most commonly copper) used to make the metal workable. Pure silver is generally considered too soft to work with, although you can find silver jewellery at 950 or 980, even the occasional 99.9% fine silver, which can be work-hardened to increase durability.


Turquoise is a mineral that occurs when water containing elements like copper and aluminium leach through rock. It's vivid blue-green colour is decided by the level of elements, more copper produces a greener colour, more zinc a yellower tone. It is a porous stone so to keep it looking beautiful for a long time avoid temperature swings, chemicals, cosmetics, perfumes and ultrasonic cleaners.
