This authentic vintage sterling silver squash blossom necklace is a true Southwestern beauty. Handmade of solid sterling silver, the necklace measures 19 3/4" long and is composed of 50 Navajo pearls and 18 squash blossoms. Each of these components are handmade individually in sterling silver and are extra heavy. The components are strung on a sterling silver chain.
The center section measures 3" by 2 1/4" and has a twisted rope motif and stamped pattern. Suspended in the center of the necklace is a bezel set turquoise cabochon measuring 22 millimeters by 17 millimeters.
This piece was constructed by hand by a Navajo silversmith (Dine) in the last quarter of the 20th century.
