What are these pins meant for?

Hello and thank you for all of your comments on posts.
I am learning a lot from this group. I’m no expert but do like inteteresting pieces. I found these pins but can’t imagine what they were used for. They are quite large, each arm of the pin measures 5 1/2". I was also attracted to the turquoise but don’t know what stones were used. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.



Welcome to the forum. You might try to upload the images again.

Thank you for this information. It looks like I was able to upload photos. Is there anything else I need to do?

These are probably collar pins, I am only seeing the back, no turquoise. https://www.google.com/search?q=navajo+collar+pins&client=safari&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiVheXS9YvrAhUOHM0KHRFTDBkQ_AUoAnoECAwQBA&biw=1680&bih=890
