Hi All, I’m new here and was just wondering if anyone can give me some info on this gorgeous necklace I was given. I’ve looked up similar pieces online and seemed to have fallen down the rabbit hole that is Native American jewelry. I’m in love! This is the first piece I’ve owned and I guess I’m just wondering if the turquoise is real? I know its hard to determine from a photo, so I’m not expecting a definitive answer. Just some advice from someone with more experience than I have (which is none ) Any other info you feel inclined to share would be appreciated. Thanks!
Welcome to the forum. What a spectacular piece you were given. It is a Navajo squash blossom, I couldn’t find a name for the hallmark. Looks like pieces of Persian Turquoise. Enjoy.
