Saturday Fun: What is this?!

I have another ‘what is this?’ post for you all! Anyone who knows anything about antique jewelry – likely connected to the military – may have fun with this one. I have a friend looking for any history or context possible on this piece of jewelry:

My friend has this to say:

“My grandmother gave me this today… She wasn’t sure what it was, but as soon as I recognized the emblem I knew it was the US Navy…Once I said Navy, she knew it must have been her uncle’s. He died in the late 1930s at a young age it seems, so this probably dates to around then. The inscription in one of the links says “American Queen Pitman & Keeler.” I’ve tried googling information but I can’t find one that looks just like this.”

Anyone have any suggestions or leads for her? Thanks!
