One of the most impressive pieces of Southwestern Native American jewelry has made its way into the spotlight again as a staple in any bohemian wardrobe. This accessory has made an appearance in numerous photoshoots and editorial layouts, as well as a key statement in Leah Hoff's Nashville Wedding (pictured above, link below)-- wouldn't you love investing in a signature item like the squash blossom, instead of a bridesmaid dress?! We think yes!
“Turquoise is closely associated with Navajo jewelry, but it was not until 1880 that the first turquoise was known to be set in silver. Turquoise became much more readily available in ensuing decades. Coral and other semi-precious stones came into common use around 1900. One of the most important forms of Navajo and Southwestern Native American jewelry, is the Squash Blossom Necklace."
