Up for auction is a beautiful vintage Native American Navajo sterling silver and high grade Morenci turquoise shadowbox necklace.

Old Pawn Native American Jewelry refers to the pieces that were made, worn and treasured as not only adornment, protection of good health, but also as portable wealth. Not having ready access to banks, or cash money, this jewelry would often serve as the family "reserve" or "emergency" fund. 

In times of need, this silver and turquoise jewelry could be easily  used as security with an authorized trader (pawned) for cash to meet the current crisis. Then, when the crops came in, or the sheep were shorn, the jewelry could be redeemed and take its place back in the family.

Unfortunately on occasions this jewelry would not be redeemed as planned. The lender would keep it for the agreed amount of time, and if the loan was not paid off by the agreed date, the Pawn Shop, or Trader would be authorized to sell the jewelry.

Often, when the elders of the family die, their items are pawned and the money is divided among the family members.

 Overall length of necklace is 16-1/4". Squash Blossoms measure approximately 1-3/4" long and 1" wide. They feature a setting approximately 7/16" long and 3/8" wide each.

Total weight of necklace is 64.1g.

The round handmade beads measure 5/16" in diameter. The necklace is strung on sterling silver chain with a hook and eye clasp.

The necklace has been tested and examined for purity and is sterling silver. In addition, there are no test marks or cosmetic damage on the pieces. The necklace pictured is the one you will receive. Thank you for looking and good luck bidding!
