Please help me to identify this artist of this set. I’m sure it was made in the early 1950s as a gift for my Aunt. She said the cost was $1000 at that time…? I tried to have one of the earrings made into a ring and the guy said no as that would ruin the piece but also it was too valuable.

This necklace is a Navajo shadowbox style piece. I do not believe that it is that early of a piece because of the machine beads, more like 70s or 80s. Also, the stones appear to be pieces of Sleeping Beauty that you don’t see in that time era. Initial hallmarks and common style work can be very difficult to identify. Can you possibly give us a picture of the hallmark? Thanks for sharing.

Sorry I can’t get a clear picture of the trade mark, it is just a stamp STERLING
C S
The sterling is about half the size of the C S
The hook to connect is just that a hook and the other half is a figure 8 . It tarnishes fast.

The CS is directly below the STERLING.
