Extra large, bold, and heavy vintage 50's-70's Navajo twenty stone turquoise nugget squashblossom necklace. The silversmith has created twelve (12) individual turquoise nugget "blossoms", and eight (8) stone naja pendant, and has used 0ne hundred seventy two (172) 8mm silver seamed beads to make the necklace. It appears to have been restrung on nylon coated beading wire with a heavy duty silver shepherd's hook clasp and eye. The turquoise is blue to blue-green with heavy brown and rust brown matrix and each beautiful cut and polished turquoise nugget is set into a smooth silver bezel wrapped with twisted wire. Each turquoise blossom also sports repeat crescent moon wire, and scroll wire, and a large silver leaf with silver drop along with a trefold fluted blossom connected to the underside. The stones on the naja are decorated fairly similar with exception to the large stone at top and the stone directly under it which has two (2) silver leaves and a double scroll wire.

The complete necklace measures 31 1/2" end to end with a wearable length of 18 1/2" measured from clasp down to bottom tip of naja pendant. It weighs a hefty 309 grams (10.90 oz or 9.94 ozt) and is unsigned sterling silver. Each turquoise blossom measures between 1 9/16" by 1" across up to 1 3/4" by 1 1/4" across. The naja measures a whopping 4 1/2" by 3 7/8" across. Very well made, bold, heavy squashblossom necklace with beautiful turquoise nuggets!  $1799.95
