A "naja" is what some people refer to as the horseshoe at the terminus of a squash blossom necklace. Naja means crescent in the Navajo language. Some say it mimics a design on the center piece of the bridles on the horses the Spanish rode into the Southwest in the 1500's. This is an understated but elegant one. It appears as new but it was acquired out of a pawn vault. Could be that it was pawned right after it was made. It is certainly a bargain at the above price. Weight is 1.5-ounces without the included 18-inch solid Sterling silver chain that ships with the naja. Length of the naja itself is 2.25-inches (excluding the removable bale), and width is 2 and 5/8th's. Hallmarked "MH."
