Above and to the right is a Native American Silver and Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace There are over 240 blue Turquoise stones. This was a labour intensive piece of Native Silver Jewelry that was most definitely a treasure to the person who owned it as it was made in the 1950's. This Navajo Silver Necklace was purchased from the Shonto Trading Post in the 1970’s as Pawn Turquoise Jewelry so it was older at that point. It was most likely made in the 1950’s - 60's and it has a maker’s mark of IH on the back of the Naja. This is a bold and stunning piece of Native Silver Jewelry that truly makes a statement when worn.
