When you need a special gift for you Mother, Grandmother, wife or girlfriend, think of a Grandmother Pin.

The Grandmother Pin (also known as a Mother Pin or a Cluster Pin) is a stone cluster pin (or pin-pendant) made by a Navajo or Zuni artist. It is meant to symbolize the matriarch of the family at the center with the family members and their families radiating outward. Traditionally a cluster pin is made of turquoise, but occasionally we will see an all coral or other stone cluster pin.
