A wonderful vintage 1960's squash blossom necklace and pierced earring set. The squash containing 17 high domed cabochons of quality gorgeous green Damele turquoise set with a sawtooth bezel and surrounded by a lively silver work pattern. The "naja" contains 7 stones, the earrings and these stones are all the same size. Back is stamped sterling with a Snail hallmark, not sure of the maker.
It is very nice in that it is a full size necklace, but not too heavy, great for everyday wear. The individual stones measure 9/16" X 3/8". Length of each petal is 2 end to end. My camera doesn't do it justice. Earrings weight 12 grams total (pair).
Necklace weighs 143 grams and measures 25 1/4 end to end. The naja measures 3 1/8 X. The item "Navajo DAMELE Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace & Earring Set Sterling, Signed" is in sale since Tuesday, May 23, 2017.
