Vintage Native American squash blossom necklace, of silver with turquoise nuggets. Unmarked as to maker and therefore unknown tribe or affiliation, this came to us from a dealer/ collector of turquoise and silver jewelry, he always brings us several nice Native American necklaces when he comes to our town; it is of good heavy weight and well made. We do not know the variety of turquoise, he and I felt it surely is stabilized for strength. We were told this was sterling, but it is not marked that we can find and since we did not see it tested we will call it silver tone metal of fine quality and price accordingly. Love the fancy metalwork around each of the blossoms. Very unique. This piece measures 26" around and the Naja is 3" long.
