This set is a classic Navajo earring and necklace set, featuring a double stone design and Sleeping Beauty turquoise.
The pendant of the Squash Blossom is called a Naja. The naja is a crescent-shaped piece that is often worn alone as a pendant or as the center piece of a squash blossom necklace in Southwestern Indian jewelry.
The word “naja” is the Navajo word for “crescent”. Navajo Indian silversmiths began incorporating the naja design into their jewelry. The Navajo were the main Indian tribe that made the najas, but they were also made by some Pueblo tribes as well.
This gallery style set has been made by Master Navajo Artist and Silversmith Gloria Pinto.
The stud earrings are easy to wear.
22 inch length, with a 2 inch drop.
