Very Unique Squash Blossom?

OOPS!!! How Do I Add Pics??
First time asking for help!!
I acquired this neckless and bracelet from my Fathers storage.
Found a extremely small makers mark, but can’t make it out on the bracelet,
hope it shows in pic.
Please tell me anything you can about this piece.
Thank you, Sandi

In the reply box you will see the top tools, click the little mountain with the moon above it, that will allow you to add images.

I think the hallmark is Hebrew, so a fair guess is that this is from Israel. Without question unrelated to Native American jewelry.

Or could be Israeli made but sold through a retailer, like Silpada or something of that sort.

They are beautiful. Turquoise and coral?

Yes and very chunky as you can see!!
Do you think this qualifies as a Squash Blossom?

It’s not a squash blossom. The defining feature of squash blossoms are the squash blossom beads, which are said to look like pomegranates:

Squash blossom necklaces are also a Native American style and to call it that implies that it is Native American, which this isn’t.

Thank you, I didn’t know about beads defining a squash!!

You will find plenty of necklaces called “squash blossoms” that don’t have this feature, but technically that is incorrect. In my opinion to be called a squash blossom it should either have squash blossom beads or beads that are an obvious stand in for squash blossom beads.

Are you interested in selling?

Just FYI , the price tag on it says $4000.
I would be willing to sell at 1/2 that price, I believe it’s fairly old…
