This piece of wearable Navajo Art is done in the "old-style" burnished patina. It looks sharp. Check out those beautiful American turquoise stones (from the Kingman, Arizona Mine). The squash blossom necklace itself is 25-inches end-to-end, but that doesn't take into account the length of the naja that adds total length from the back of the neck. It will hang about 13-inches from the back of one's neck to the bottom of the naja when worn. And no, it is NOT a horseshoe. It is slightly smaller in scale than a standard, traditional squash, but much bigger that the miniature squashes you see around. We don't buy or sell those. And, it's not as big as those ship-anchor size ones you see in the magazines. The earrings included are nice as well. Weight of the squash necklace is 155-grams, or 5.47-ounces. Hallmarked "AL," which is the hallmark for Augustine Largo. Always free Priority shipping within the U.S.
