New necklace..choker? Or is this for a child?

Can anyone tell me what kind of turquoise this is, about how old and any idea who the artist may be?? I am guessing Navaho and possibly old pawn? The weight on it is over 98 grams. Pictures look gold, but it is silver.

If it would fit, it would make a beautiful choker!!

I can’t tell you what mine (my default is always Kingman cause so much is :laughing:), or give a good guess on age. Only thing I would say is, it seems like it should only be accurately called “old pawn” if it had a pawn ticket originally. Not sure I’m right on that, but that term gets thrown around a lot.

And not “old” pawn unless it’s truly old…

Navajo silversmith Sadie Calvin used a chicken, kind of like this mark but different. Has the looks of what you see called Kingman sea foam. I think of the piece not being colder than 1980s.

Best thing is try and find something close like this necklace Stunning Vintage Navajo Turquoise and Silver Necklace : Precious Memories Antiques | Ruby Lane. Then start doing stuff like your turquoise is not as good as this stone, but your style is better, finally ending up with something similar in value.
