Vintage Navajo 925 Sterling Silver Turquoise Shadowbox Squash Blossom Necklace J
The classic squash blossom necklace features a crescent shaped pendant, called “Naja” (Nah-Hah), the Navajo word for crescent. A symbol that was common to many of the earliest civilizations. In the late 1500s and early 1600s, the saddles and bridles of huge muscled horses of the Spanish Conquistadors where fitted with sterling silver crescent-shaped pendants of Moorish origin. For the next 200 years, as the two cultures cycled through various phases of peace and conflict in the struggle for power, the Navajo adopted and incorporated these and other traditional Spanish ornaments into their jewelry. Early on, the Navajo wore the Nah-Hah as an ornament of beauty and these pieces also came to symbolize wealth. Eventually became associated with crop fertility and worn during ceremonies related to the agricultural cycles. It was customary for Medicine men to wear them as well. This beautiful squash blossom necklace measures 25.5 long and weighs 86.8g. The naja pendant measures 2-1/4″ long and 2-3/8″ wide. The side pendants measure 1-1/16″ long and 13/16″ wide.
