On the Trail of Quality Since 1976

Custom-made squash blossom necklace with No. 8 Mine turquoise by Augustine Largo, Navajo.—SOLD!

$2,375.00

Description

SOLD!  The Drifter hand-picked the stones in this stunning piece.  It appears on the model on page 112 of the current issue of COWBOYS & INDIANS magazine (April, '19, featuring Woody Harrelson on the cover)—see 2nd pic.  The magazine incorrectly identifies the turquoise as being Dry Creek.  Understandable because Dry Creek and No. 8 Mine have a similar appearance.  But the No. I Mine closed in 1978 and is almost prohibitively expensive, but what the heck.  Uncommon offerings is what High Plains Jewelry is all about.  This squash actually has appeared twice in COWBOYS & INDIANS magazine, as it was part of our ad featuring 'round the clock squashblossoms (see third pic).   Here, Navajo master silversmith Augustine Largo took his time and created a museum-quality piece.  The naja, stones and blossoms are standard size, but the length is a tidbit shorter (24.25-inches), which means it hangs about 12-inches below the back of the neck to the top of the naja.  You don't have to be a runway model to wear this squash, but wearing it may result in you becoming one!
