Navajo-Crafted Zia Sun Symbol Pendant in Sterling Silver with Turquoise Cabochon
A small 1 ¼” (including bail) sterling silver pendant in the shape of a Zia sun symbol and with a composite turquoise cabochon. Navajo-made in New Mexico.
The Zia sun symbol is the state symbol for New Mexico but, even more importantly, it was a sacred symbol to the Zia tribe. The distinctive cross-like pattern with four “arms” is believed to symbolize the circle of life and includes the four directions, the four elements, the four seasons and the four stages of life.
Crafted by a Navajo silversmith, our Zia pendant is sterling silver with a composite turquoise (turquoise mixed with resin or epoxy) cabochon in the center. Dainty, it measures 1 ¼” in height including the slightly oversized bail and is ready to hang on a chain, cord or to incorporate into a design of your own making.
Navajo-made, New Mexico.
