Beautiful vintage 50's-60's Navajo coral twisted wire decorated squashblossom necklace. The silversmith used eighteen (18) pieces of cut and polished branch coral each set into hand cut saw tooth bezels and wrapped with twisted wire. The silversmith handmade one hundred forty eight (148) 8mm sterling silver seamed beads, ten (10) handmade coral blossoms decorated with twisted wire scrolls and flat faced trefold flutes, and a matching double heavy gauge wire naja that supports six (6) single coral decorated twisted wire scrolls along with the large center double coral decorated setting. The necklace has been professionally restrung with foxtail chain and soldered jump rings that hold the shepherds hook and eye clasp.

The necklace measures 27" long end to end with a wearable length of 16 1/4" measured from clasp to bottom of the naja. Each blossom measures 1 5/8" by 7/8" across with the naja measuring 3" by 2 3/4" across.  It weighs 175.7 grams (6.20 oz or 5.65 ozt) and is unsigned sterling silver. Good solid squashblossom necklace with beautiful (possibly Mediterranean?) coral!  $1219.95
