  • Product description

    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.
