Nothing looks as classy and elegant as Native American turquoise sterling silver squash blossom necklaces The best pieces, in my opinion, are some of the beautiful work done by skilled Native American silversmiths in the southwest on Squash Blossom Necklaces.
I wanted a really good quality necklace that I could hand down to my niece so I did some searching for authentic jewelry that included genuine turquoise.
I also felt that a necklace should look good for evening wear, but I also required the look of simplicity if I chose to wear it at a casual social gathering. And I didn't want it to have the appearance of cheap costume jewelry. I expected good craftsmanship on each piece.
These 3 pieces are the creme de la creme and all of these designs are perfect choices!
Caring for Your Sterling Silver Squash Blossom Necklace
It goes without saying, of course, that anything this beautiful, unique and high quality deserves some TLC. Sterling silver wears well but, when not worn regularly, will tarnish. There are specially lined boxes that will help keep your silver in good shape, but over time any sterling silver will become dull and tarnish.
Though skin oils can dull your necklace and possibly slightly deteriorate the metal, to keep it in good condition, wipe your necklace after each use with a soft cloth rubbing away oils and dirt. Regularly inspect your necklace for any wear, pitting, or any kind of damage to the silver, individual links or the chain and clasp itself. Always store the necklace properly. If you use the necklace on a regular basis, a yearly check up to a reputable jeweler is always a good idea.
