Vintage Chickasaw turquoise teardrop decorated pin.pendant. The silversmith has used a teardrop cut and polished high quality turquoise stone with rust brown, brown, and dark brown matrix throughout. Set into a sawtooth bezel and decorated with two (2) large fans above the stone separated with a large silver drop and two (2) silver leaves under the stone. The artist has used scrolls and silver drops to decorate each side and fill voids. The artist finishes by attaching both a wire bale clip and safety locking pin/clasp on the back. The pendant can be worn as a pendant or a brooch.

The pendant measures 1 7/8" by 1 1/4" across with the stone itself measuring 1 1/4" by 1" across. It weighs a healthy 22.6 grams and is hallmarked ES - Native Woman with 87 in hair and 7 under bust. I searched the hallmark books and attribute the pendant to Chickasaw silver smith Elkin Senter. Obviously the 87 means it was made in 1987, but not sure the meaning of the number 7? Very nice solid and heavy pendant/pin with quality turquoise stone!  $177.95
