Vintage Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace
>>-->LAYAWAY AVAILABLE SEE FAQ FOR PAYMENT PLAN<--<<
This vintage turquoise and silver Squash Blossom necklace is perfect. It will go with absolutely anything from the classic T-Shirt and jeans to a Little Black Dress.
This is a large gorgeous Squash with a large turquoise stone set in the Naja. It is very large and solid. The silver is thick and this was a piece definitely not made for the tourist trade.
It is 31" long from end to end (but hangs at about 34" because of the Naja) with eight silver pomegranates on each side of the Naja. The pomegranates measure 1 5/8" long. They are all three lobed at the ends indicating a newer (post 1940s) style.
The Naja is 2 3/16" at the widest part and 2 5/16" Tall with a 1" X 3/4" piece of turquoise (not including the bail) hanging from the middle.
The handmade silver beads are what are referred to as "Bench Beads" they are 1/4" wide. This necklace is 194 grams. It has a hook and eye closure and the whole necklace has a beautiful patina on it.

*A word on vintage jewelry; Sometimes it is imperfect. Sometimes the bezels don't match up, or a band is set slightly off. This is the nature of vintage jewelry and jewelry in general. Everything is not always perfect, like humans there can be small flaws. Please understand this when buying vintage jewelry*
