There are no markings that we would find, but guaranteed to be Native American made. Some light old pawn patina that has not been cleaned. Will come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
A magnificent piece of Navajo jewelry art, big bold and absolutely beautiful! IMHO, museum quality and highly collectible!
