Zuni Petite Point Squash Blossom Necklace
What makes this vintage Zuni petit point squash blossom necklace unique is the shape of the squash blossom that the maker chose. We have not encounter the tear drop shape turquoise placed in this way before. It certainly makes for an eye catch piece that feels more organic on the wearer.
The necklace is in excellent condition and has a touch of patina. All the stones are intact. The Naja features 71 hand cut turquoise stones and each of the 12 blossom contains 8. The necklace is coin silver or better and is strung on a sterling silver fox tail chain. The untreated turquoise stones range in shade from a soft blue green to a bright sky blue and are absolutely stunning.
