This squash blossom necklace set is a Navajo classic! This Native American jewelry set is Navajo hand crafted and strung by artist B. Benally, out of genuine sterling silver and real Amber stones. The necklace is composed of one Naja (the crescent-shaped large center pendant) and double strands of 7-mm silver round beads that are placed at regular intervals among the round side of the center. The Naja is set with FIVE stones, while each side of the necklace has FIVE stones that are attached to three silver petals which are called squash blossoms. All of the stones are gently set in hand cut bezel settings, while being accented by twisted silver for a stunning look. The necklace is stamped sterling and hallmarked. Entire traditional necklace is flexible "not stiff". The earrings have a total of FOUR stones (TWO in each earring) and perfectly match the necklace for a wonderful finish to this set. The earrings are stamped sterling and hallmarked. This entire set has a total of NINETEEN stones.
