This is a beautiful, classic Navajo squash blossom necklace featuring open squash blossoms and five unique flower settings, each one formed specifically to suit the shape and character of the turquoise stone it holds.
This squash blossom necklace measures 26 inches in length, beginning with a single strand at the clasp, transitioning to double strand as it meets the first turquoise flower. Flowers and squash blossoms alternate across the collar bone, returning to a single strand as it approaches the clasp from the other side.
In all, there are 80 single silver beads, five turquoise blossoms and four squash blossoms. The squash blossoms are fused to the two beads directly above it, keeping the double strand structure in place and displaying the blossoms to their best advantage. The overall weight is 71 grams (just under 3 ounces). Our jewelry is polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our fine jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
