My first Squash Blossom necklace

Quetzalli!!

My very first Squash Blossom necklace! I’m over the top with my newest addition to my turquoise collection. This Squash Blossom was made in 1920 She’s 100 years old! 21 Morenci stones with a patina that shows it’s age elegantly. 6.5 ounces 24 inches. Took me time to get her but she came today. Now a family heirloom! Aaaaaahhooooo!! Quetzalli!!

Congrats! You wear it well. What pretty stones.
About its date: I hope it’s okay to suggest that this sort of squash blossom necklace is from quite a bit later than 1920–surely the second half of the 20th c., and most likely ca 1970s-80s. Wear it in the best of health!

Thank you. Really appreciate the date info. Seller said 1920 but I’m ok with 1970s it’s as old as me. The blossoms are strung so close together I want to say way before 1980s the blossoms were really spaced apart after the 70s. I am in love with it. The blues were really hard to capture much more vivid in person.

I love that feeling when I get a new piece of jewelry. I came across a lovely squash blossom on eBay back in the winter.
I passed on it because my son just got his braces on & I couldn’t justify it at the time but damn it’s still haunting me… :tired_face::ghost:
