Pin, Cluster, Petit Point, Turquoise, Hallmark, Vintage, 443

Size Guide
Grandmother Pin, Mother Pin, or a Cluster Pin - whatever you want to call it, it always makes an impression.

This showy Grandmother pin has all the characteristics of traditional Zuni cluster work but it is in fact, Navajo.  Handcrafted by Navajo silversmith, Paul Jones, four rings of turquoise stones fan out from the center and are highlighted by a ring of sterling silver crescent moons.  At 3 ½” diameter, this is truly a statement piece!

History: In traditional Navajo & Zuni cluster pins, the center stone is said to symbolize the matriarch of the family. She is the center of the home with all of the other family members and their families radiating outward.
