Gold and turquoise

Gift of Vivian Merrin 1989.39
Turquoise is pretty but it was also thought to bring good luck.
The rich gold and beautiful turquoise of this pendant make this piece of jewelry a visual delight. At the lower half one notices the fine braiding detail. The extravagant materials suggest it was made for a wealthy individual.
