Here's a Native American Zuni handmade Sterling Silver rainbow man pin/pendant that we retrieved from one of our favorite New Mexico pawn shops. The elaborate rainbow man yei is inlaid with Sleeping Beauty turquoise, coral, lapis, white & Gold Lip Mother of Pearl and black onyx. The use of lapis is an unusual touch. The colorful inlay is in excellent condition!
The piece can be worn as a pin or a pendant and it measures 1-3/4 long.
The exact age of the piece is unknown. Obtained from a well-respected Gallup, New Mexico pawn shop. This pawn shop is near the Navajo and Zuni reservations and has been serving its Native American clients for years.
Gift box and Certificate of Authenticity included with your purchase. Hallmarked Quinton and Margie Quam and Zuni with an engraver. These two Zuni jewelers are known for their meticulous inlay work, often depicting birds and rainbow men.
