34" 1980s Vintage Squash Blossom Necklace

  • 34" 1980s Vintage Squash Blossom Necklace - Historically, the squash blossom necklace serves as a reminder of the close interaction between the Pueblo and Navajo Indians since the mid-1800s.

    All beads and Sleeping Beauty stones make this vintage Native-made estate necklace a less flourishy version of the traditional squash blossom necklace. It has five side squash blossoms and a naja pendant made up of seven more stones. The necklace's handmade Navajo Pearls are doubled up in support, and the beads show through all along its length. At that time, the Sleeping Beauty stones were given what's called a red rouge finish, a common thing at that time, to bring variation in the usually true blue stone that comes from that mine. It has a secure clasp. We have not taken any cleaning chemicals to it, so it has a great vintage patina. It is a good starter squash blossom for collectors and will be well-loved, regardless, once you have it around your neck, gracing any outfit you wear!
