Navajo Sterling squash blossom necklace with Turquoise Mountain turquoise, by Augustine Largo.—SOLD!

$1,095.00

Description

SOLD!  This is one of three slightly (emphasis on "slightly) smaller-scale authentic Dine' squash blossom necklaces the Drifter acquired of recent.  The one pictured here is actually not much smaller than a standard squash, having six squashes on each side.  But it is very affordable nonetheless.  These—as is ALL our squash blossoms—are authentic Navajo—or Dine' (Navajo is the name given the people by the white man) squash blossom necklaces—two of which are fashioned by the known artist Augustine Largo.  All squash blossom necklaces the Drifter acquires use only quality American turquoise (none of that miniature, thin-gauge tourist junk of questionable origin here!). This one is 25-inches end-to-end, not counting the naja.  Counting the naja, it hangs approximately 13 inches down from the back of the neck.  The silver is finished in the old-style patina, and the Sterling silver is of good gauge thickness—making it feel quite substantial without being too heavy.  The Turquoise Mountain mine turquoise is of a greener shade ad has plenty of attractive copper matrix.  Hallmarked "Auggie L,"  Which is Augustine's new hallmark stamp.  Quite a bargain and, as always, High Plains Jewelry provides free Priority shipping.
