Old Pawn Navajo Sterling Handmade Necklace Carico Lake Turquoise Pendant | Ps Ai For Sale

Old Pawn Navajo Sterling Handmade Necklace Carico Lake Turquoise Pendant | Ps Ai

Up for sale is an old pawn Navajo handmade sterling silver bead necklace & Carico Lake turquoise pendant!

Old Pawn Native American Jewelry refers to the pieces that were made, worn and treasured as not only adornment, protection of good health, but also as portable wealth. Not having ready access to banks, or cash money, this jewelry would often serve as the family "reserve" or "emergency" fund. In times of need, this silver and turquoise jewelry could be easily used as security with an authorized trader (pawned) for cash to meet the current crisis. Then, when the crops came in, or the sheep were shorn, the jewelry could be redeemed and take its place back in the family.

Unfortunately on occasions this jewelry would not be redeemed as planned. The lender would keep it for the agreed amount of time, and if the loan was not paid off by the agreed date, the Pawn Shop, or Trader would be authorized to sell the jewelry. Often, when the elders of the family die, their items are pawned and the money is divided among the family members.

The Carico Lake mine is in Lander county, Nevada. The turquoise coming from the mine ranges from light green to a deep blue with a matrix of mostly limonite. The bright greens of the cabochons that are offered here are rare in today’s turquoise market and highly valued because of their beauty set in gold.

Necklace measures 24-3/8" from end to end and weighs 51.1g. Thebeads range from 11mmto6mm in diameter. The pendant measures 2-11/16" by 1-11/16". Beads and pendant come strung on a silver fox chain with a hook and eye clasp. Please take the time to view all 11 photos of this piece before placing your offer.
