Sterling bead balls emphasize the beauty of this vintage 1950s Zuni squash blossom necklace.
An exquisite example of the traditional Squash Blossom necklace and Zuni lapidary, this 1950s vintage piece is set with Blue Gem turquoise, cut and shaped by hand on a grinding wheel into the classic needlepoint shape and placed in hand-cut sawtooth bezels.

Sterling bead balls accent the squash blossoms, and the Naja pendant is set with needlepoint Blue Gem turquoise in a flowering cluster design. Hook-and-eye closure. One of a kind. Made in USA. 26"L; Naja 2"W x 2-1/8"L; Bowties 1"L.
