I found this today at a pawn shop. It has no mark whatsoever, although I’m positive that it’s sterling 925. I’m less sure about the turquoise though. I’m still a total beginner with turquoise and can’t actually tell what’s what.
I had another ring I thought for sure was fake, and it turned out to be real. So I just can’t tell.
I’d love to hear your opinions about this little one.
I’m guessing that it’s not a very valuable little pendant, especially since it looks like someone polished the back so much that there’s no visible signature or anything.
But I’m very curious about the hollow space surrounding the turquoise stone. I wonder if it was made this way, or if someone has dug out and removed something that used to be there.
There doesn’t appear to be any little scratches or anything like I would expect to see if someone removed something. Just an empty space. It’s strange. What do you think?
