Regular price $90.00 $0.00 Unit price per

Presented is a beautiful vintage sterling silver, garnet and turquoise brooch or
pendant. This piece was made in Israel, and dates to around the 1950s-1960s. The pendant is set with faceted garnets,
round turquoise cabochons, and oval glass or rhinestone cabochons, all
surrounded with fine ropetwist and granulated decoration. The piece has a
loop/bail in the back so it can be worn as a pendant, as well as a rollover
style safety clasp.

The piece is in good overall condition. The pendant is missing one garnet, on
the left end of the piece, visible in the first photo. Please let the photos
guide your judgment. The pendant is stamped on the back with Made in Israel and
what looks like 935 for the purity of the silver. The stamp is a little unclear,
but we have tested the piece and guarantee it to be at least 925 (sterling)

The pendant measures about 2 inches by 1 3/8 inches.

The pendant weighs 10.8 grams.
