This silver pendant is covered with natural original shape coral cabochons that circle the edge of the silver, with one coral in the center.  The silver backing has scalloped edges, with each scallop being stamped with delicate lines.  A wide silver loop is sufficient for a thick silver chain.

The pendant is stamped with the initials DJM but we have not determined the owner of those initials.  The style of the work is typical of that by Diné silversmiths of the Navajo Nation.


Condition: very good condition

Provenance: this Diné Stamped Sterling Silver and Coral Pendant is from the collection of a client from Oklahoma
