Lovely old Native American necklace consisting of fine (tested) sterling silver Navajo bench beads and five graduated size squash blossoms with large fine turquoise centers surrounded by leaves, twist wire and other designs, very fine silverwork. The turquoise is highly polished with fabulous matrix, may be stabilized as stones this large usually were to make them resist damage when wearing. The necklace is 19" around and the largest blossom is 2 and 1/2" long. No maker mark that we can find. Circa 1970 or older. It is in very good condition. We have not polished it at all.
