Vintage Native American Navajo Sterling Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace Set
Vintage Native American Navajo Sterling Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace Set This is a wonderful classic style vintage Native American Navajo-made sterling silver and turquoise jewelry set. The set came from a Scottsdale, AZ estate. My estimate is that this is a 1970s set. All of the pieces feature beautiful large rustic turquoise chunks which are bezel set with fine rope borders and frames with decorative hashmarks. In my opinion the stones are great quality, secure in their settings and without damage. The brilliant blue color of the turquoise has me wondering if this is indeed Sleeping Beauty, however Kingman is a possibility as well. All of the pieces are well made and in wonderful vintage condition. I do not see any hallmark stampings but this is common for pieces from this era. It is becoming more and more difficult to find matching sets, these are definitely heirloom pieces that can be passed from one generation to the next. Included in this set is the following: The squash blossom necklace with a seven-stone naja plus center dangle, five blossoms on each side, put together with bench beads, strung on beading wire and with a hook and eye closure.
The back of the naja has the remnant of a sticker which says Sterling. Total length of the beads is 24.5" and the naja is 3.5" in total length by 3.375 in width at its widest point.
Total weight is 243 grams. The cuff bracelet with three stations, two rows come together in the back to form the band.
The inside measurement is 5.125" and the gap is 1.125" for a total wrist circumference of 6.25. There is some flexibility in the band. Total weight is 36 grams. The dangles came to me without earwires so I added sterling silver French hooks.
Total length from the top of the earwire is 1.5. Total weight is 13 grams.
