INTRICATE VINTAGE SILVER PATINA NAVAJO BEETLE PIN
Authentic Old Pawn jewelry features complex construction, intricate designs and large turquoise stones. Pieces from circa 1945 will not have owners’ initials or makers marks, which is why it’s important to pay attention to other clues to indicate authenticity.
Wear and Tear: Authentic Old Pawn jewelry will have a natural gray patina, indicating age. It takes decades for the patina to develop and may appear grayer in dry climates like the southwest. Humidity will add a darker, blacker patina. Patina typically isn’t buffed off in order to preserve its history and value. Made of Sterling Silver.
This is vintage jewelry handmade by Native American Indians and is a southwestern fashion style.
