This 925 sterling silver, heart-shaped Zuni pendant is inlaid with turquoise. Dating back to the late 1970s, this quite small pendant so beautifully rendered in shape and color has a large “spirit.” It would make for a delightful gift for one’s soul mate, life partner, or dear friend.
The pendant is in excellent vintage condition, free of scratches, chips or other markings. On its backside appears the hallmark” L. Laiwakete, Zuni,” an apparent reference to the jeweler who crafted this remarkable piece.
For those who collect Native American jewelry, this pendant makes for a great addition to such a collection.
