This is a preColumbian 5.9 gram spiral of rich gold worn as a finger ring by the Muisca people of Colombia 10th to 16th century.
One could turn this into a pendant by inserting a bead into the top of the piece and then running a beading thread (a strong one which won't be torn by the edge of the gold) across the slits, going through the bead to stablize the piece as a pendant.
This is a dark, richly coloured preColumbian necklace with stones carved by the Tairona Indians of Colombia.

 Sacred Cosmology, Precolumbian Mesoamerican Symbolism: Epigraph - Preliminary Note
The volume itself, is presented as a contribution to the study of the Precolumbian tradition, as it deals with the cosmogony and theogony of the native peoples as revealed through their cultural symbols.
No sooner had the author begun to conceive the notion of a work on Precolumbian symbolism, than he noticed that its perspective would scarcely be grasped without a preliminary exposition of certain ideas (symbol, myth, rite, traditional society, and so on)—that is, without the theoretical framework within which his work is comprised.
Finally, the author wishes to go on record as believing in the activating capacity of symbols, in their transformatory virtue, just as he maintains that these symbols are present today, only waiting to be recalled to life.

Of the numerous highland Maya hieroglyphic codices which once existed, not a single one is known to have survived these purges, prompting some scholars to question whether any significant remnants of Precolumbian art or ritual survived the first shock of conquest.
Traditionalist Maya scribes and shamans actively sought to preserve the basic tenets of Precolumbian cosmology while grafting onto them those aspects of Christian worship which were consistent with their own indigenous world view.
Such foliated crosses are common in highland Maya villages, and are traceable to similar verdant cross-shaped World Trees which are prevalent in Precolumbian Maya art, such as those depicted in the sanctuary panels of the Group of the Cross and the sarcophagus lid of Hanab Pakal at Palenque (Fig.

 Books: Precolumbian Odyssey
Written by the late Pál Keleman, an art historian of Hungarian extraction, and his wife, Elizabeth, an opera singer by training, the journals chronicle the couple's extensive travels throughout the Americas, an odyssey that began with a visit to Harvard's Peabody Museum in the fall of 1932.
At that time, only a few of the sites the Kelemens would visit had been excavated, much less opened to mass tourism, and literature on the subject of Precolumbian archaeology was all but nonexistent.
Encouraged by the Peabody's Alfred Tozzer, a prominent Mesoamerian archaeologist, the Kelemens set out not only to document a broad array of Precolumbian material both in museum collections and in the field, but to comment on and interpret it as art historians.

The Book of Mormon, the central text, purports to present a history of precolumbian America populated by biblical peoples.
