This Zuni Pueblo silver necklace has three "new moon" sections, each of which is covered with very small turquoise cabs, sometimes referred to as snake eye turquoise. Each of the three is connected with a silver hook, and there is a handmade silver chain that connects with a clasp.

The necklace is lightweight, petite, and elegant in its scale. It has a strong appeal.

What does the new moon symbol mean? The Native Moon Symbol is the protector and guardian of the earth. Its spirit watches over us and can change our moods. Just like the tides being pulled by new and full moon cycles, humans can also be affected.

This necklace would look great with these matching earrings: Zuni Pueblo Petite Earrings of Silver and Turquoise our Item # C4643.68


Condition: very good condition

Provenance: this Zuni Pueblo Petite Necklace of Silver and Turquoise is from a private collection
