DAILY SPECIAL - 25% OFF Mon 2/15 ONLY :: Vintage Alpaca Mexico Abalone Brooch Pin Pendant

This interesting brooch with a bail to use as a pendant was made in Mexico features a Mexican pyramid with what looks like a flame and altar at the top. Gorgeous abalone chips are inlaid in the black enamel background all surrounded in a warm silver-colored metal called Alpaca. Alpaca is a non-silver alloy (zinc, nickel, iron). Sometimes it is silverplated, however I am not sure if this piece is or not. A lovely and versatile piece!
