Navajo Mark I can't find

Postby azsungal77 » Fri Jan 27, 2012 3:03 pm

I have a little pendant that has been tested sterling and is of Navajo design. This one was bought about 33 yrs ago I believe. The mark is RB over Sterling. I will do my best to get a picture of the mark. I questioned the stone at the jewelers, it is manufactured opal according to him which then puts to question is it truly Navajo.

I found RB in the Southwest book but none over Sterling.

I can't identify the maker from what you say, but Navajo (and other Native silversmiths of the Southwest) commonly use synthetic opal in their jewelry.
