Squash blossom necklaces have become synonymous with Southwestern Native American jewelry. These unique and beautiful necklaces were originally created by the Navajo, with origins dating back to the 1870s. Rumor has it that the Navajo people chose this design due to the pomegranate decorative element of the colonial Spanish. Consequently, Navajo artisans placed the squash blossom petal beads on a beaded silver necklace, attached a naja pendant to the bottom and the beautiful squash blossom necklace was created. Initially, all Navajo squash blossom necklaces were crafted entirely in silver and were worn by both Navajo and Pueblo men and women. Starting in the early 1900s, they began incorporating turquoise, coral and other elaborate designs into the necklaces, giving each one its own unique look.
