Pin, Cluster, Turquoise, Huge 4", Hallmark, Estate, Vintage, 446

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

So huge that it’s hypnotizing!   This vintage grandmother pin was handcrafted by Navajo silversmith, Leo G. Harvey (d), with five rings of turquoise stones fanning out from the center stone.  Highlights of sterling silver twist wire and silver drops had the perfect amount of shine.  At 4” 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.

Leo G. Harvey(Navajo, Lukachukai, Arizona)  (1935 - 2010)

Owned “Harvey’s Genuine American Indian Jewelry” and contracted family and local silversmiths,  Known for mosaic inlay, cluster work.
