Made and hallmarked by Wilson Padilla, Navajo, this eye-pleasing squash blossom is sharp. It has a generous 29 pieces of the defunct and very expensive Sleeping Beauty mine turquoise—fifteen just on the naja! Today's price of similar Sleeping Beauty stones would make the cost of replicating this squash very, very expensive. Also, the thicker-gauge Sterling silver blossoms are distinct and perfect, trumpeting-out impressively. Everything about this squash blossom is excellent! Perhaps the best bang-for-the-buck of any we have. And please note, all offerings at High Plains Jewelry (except glass or stone beadwork, of course) are tested to ensure Sterling silver content. Beware of squash blossoms that may have beads—or other parts—that are merely silver plated, or made with nickel silver. The Drifter only buys and sells Sterling! And oh yeah, that last pic with the timepiece in the center is our upcoming ad in Cowboys & Indians magazine, coming out in January '18.
