    SOLD!  We are kinda speechless with this one.  No need, it speaks for itself.  This 201-gram (or 7.07-ounce!) masterpiece is an exercise in splendor.  Squash-blossom necklaces have been around for a few hundred years and are more popular now than ever.  Unfortunately, such popularity and corresponding demand—along with the advent of the internet—has  led to fakes; plastic stone non-Sterling atrocities, and off-shore knockoffs.  It ever the axiom "you get what you pay for" applies, it does so with authentic Native American made squash-blossom necklaces.  Augustine Largo has been making beauties like this for us since he and I were much, much younger.  The Largo name has been well-respected in the world of Navajo arts for a long time as well.  At 23.5-inches end-to-end (not counting the three inches added to the 'drop' length by the Naja), it is not one of those gargantuan things you see in a few magazine ads (which a Navajo would seldom wear anyway).  It is not petite either.  'Kinda like Goldilock's favorite porridge—it's just right!  Speaking of 'just right,' how 'bout those colorful Kingman Stones?  Eighteen of 'em.  And earrings to match!  It is hallmarked with Augustine's modest stamp, "AL," on the back of the Naja.  Complimentary USPS tracked Priority box shipping within the U.S.  Enjoy!
