 This authentic Native American Squash Blossom was handmade by Navajo artist Thomas Francisco. The back is stamped with his hallmark "Thomas Francisco", his arrow insignia, and a Sterling Silver designation. The necklace is 27" in length. The french hook earrings are 2.5" long. This piece features stunning Royston Turquoise that fades from a deep green to a light blue throughout.

Royston turquoise is recognizable for its high variations of color and character. Royston Turquoise often displays a heavy golden brown to dark brown matrix. These stones are mined in remote desert areas near Tonopah, Nevada.

This piece is guaranteed 925 Sterling Silver, and is etched or stamped with an insignia indicating the 925 silver content if the piece is large enough to be marked. In addition to working directly with reputable and established artists, our in-house silversmith routinely checks our inventory with random acid testing. This testing ensures that the 925 content of our jewelry is solid Sterling Silver and never plated.

The artist chemically oxidized this Sterling Silver piece to give it an antique patina. Antiquing in this manner is a very time consuming process that requires patience and skill. Oxidized pieces are popular because they offer a vintage look and require no polishing or special care. Unlike naturally oxidized pieces, the antique finish is permanent, clean, and uniform.

The pinnacle of Navajo and Southwestern Native American jewelry is the Squash Blossom Necklace. These statement pieces are made of Sterling Silver beads interspersed with stylized "squash blossoms" and a pendant, or naja, hung from the center of the necklace.The flowers closely resemble the closed squash blossom flower which represents rebirth and endless possibilities. The naja, which resembles an upside-down horseshoe, completes the design. The naja design origin was influenced by traditional Spanish horse halters.

This piece was handmade by a member of the Navajo American Indian tribe. The Navajo Nation is a territory that covers 18 million acres and extends across 3 states of the southwestern United States. This land is home to 350,000 indigenous people, most of whom struggle to find resources and opportunity in this sparsely populated area of extreme desert terrain. Fortunately, the Navajo have a rich artistic culture that has been passed down to each generation. Navajo tribe artists began to develop their jewelry making techniques in the 1850's. Today, over half of all Navajo families have at least one family member producing handmade art for sale. We are proud to support these artists by developing collaborative projects that provide employment through the artistic expression of their culture.

Our pieces are never drop shipped or fulfilled by an outside provider.
