Well, you don't see something this remarkable every day! The Drifter—ever a fan of ribbon turquoise—had this beauty custom-made. Squash-blossom necklaces began as medicine man wear and they still wear them. They are a big part of Dine' history and tradition. We've done a couple of shows lately and noticed there are people out there wearing cheap costume jewelry made to look like squash-blossom necklaces. Pure junk. And they're wearing them in public! Shame on them. If one can't afford a real, authentic Navajo squash blossom, that person should just be content with whatever comes out of their Cracker Jack box rather than wear a plastic or plated offshore-made facsimile. But I digress. Anyway, this beauty speaks for itself—and it says a lot about the wearer's taste and knowledge of Native American jewelry. It is 34-inches end-to-end, not counting the length the naja adds. It will hang approximately 19-inches down from the back of one's neck. Weight is a respectable 14.5-ounces (yes, REAL Sterling silver squash-blossoms have some weight to them), or 411-grams. Hallmarked by one of the Drifter's go-to Navajo silversmiths. Always complimentary shipping within the U.S.
