Vintage Navajo Squash Blossom Necklace-Sterling Silver & Turquoise Native American, Mexican Antique

$8,500.00

Signed: CHOEN, MEXICO. Worn, so looks like CHOEN XICO Stamped: Sterling 0925, also worn, looks like 092 Navajo Squash Blossom necklace hand-made silver & turquoise. Research indicates 1940s-50s. Signed CHOEN, possibly Amans Choen. 10 Turquoise Squash Blossoms Total length 29”: Necklace length 25” plus pendant 4” Pendant 4” x 3.5” Each Blossom 2.25” x 1.25” 8.32 oz //235.9 grams Bought by my mother, Tammy, on a trip to Mexico in the ‘60s/70’s. An artist, architect, anthropologist & lawyer, she loved the necklace for craftsmanship, history, culture & beauty. The silver has a warm patina which should polish nicely should you want to do so. Normally I’d polish posting but not now since un-doing removal of vintage patina is impossible. There’s no right or wrong, only taste and style. The Squash Blossom was created as a talisman for protection. The Moors attached it to horses’ bridles to ward off the evil eye. Dating to the 1870’s it became a centerpiece of squash blossom necklaces for protection & good luck. The horseshoe shape pendant called Naja, (Navajo for crescent) & beads representing pomegranates/squash flowers, both have Spanish roots. Earliest Squash Blossom necklaces had little or no turquoise. Added in 1890s Turquoise is known as the Traveler’s Stone, especially important to the many first nation people who believe that by wearing turquoise the human mind becomes one with the universe. Turquoise represents power, status & luxury. It’s believed wearing it results in good fortune, happiness & security. Said to possess healing & protective powers, attracts luck, love & money. Turquoise helps to ground the spirit while allowing the energy path to remain clear, thus keeping its connection to the infinite open. In addition to wearing turquoise jewelry the Navajo’s store turquoise in baskets or hang it from the ceiling to protect the family from evil. Someone is going to love wearing this fabulous statement piece. Is it you?
