    A vintage piece of Navajo sterling silver and turquoise jewelry, this squash blossom necklace is a statement piece for your wardrobe. Formed in a traditional manner, the beads and main horseshoe pendant are all encrusted with large pieces of turquoise.

     

    A little background:
    The original Squash Blossom necklace probably appeared sometime in the 1880's and is one of the most characteristic of Native American jewelry designs. The main part is the crescent-shaped "naja" which Navajo silversmiths adopted into their own artwork from the Spanish. The earliest squash blossom necklaces were silver only; the now-familiar turquoise inlay patterns were a Zuni innovation in the 19th century.

     

    This necklace is just one of hundreds of pieces of jewelry that are available at our location in Grandview! Come in today and see the full collection.
