Seventeen light to medium blue Kingman turquoise stones dot sterling silver beads and a sterling silver naja in this gorgeous, vintage Navajo squash blossom necklace. The necklace, created in the 1970s, was made in the traditional style and features ten squash blossoms along two strands of handmade sterling silver beads, a naja hanging at the center and set with seven turquoise stones. Each Kingman stone is set in a simple sterling silver bezel along both the beaded and naja portions, containing portions of brown matrix running throughout. The stones are surrounded at the base by a sterling silver rope pattern, followed by a flat, thin sterling band stamped with scallop designs. A single turquoise piece hangs from the center of the naja, and the double strands of beads merge into a single strand along the top 1/4 of the necklace. Necklace is finished with both a lobster claw and spring clasp, allowing to be made longer or shorter. Naja measures 2 1/8″ long x 2 1/2″ wide. Necklace measures 28″ from end to end and can be made shorter to 24 1/8″. Necklace end to end lengths do not include naja length.
