Vintage Old Pawn Navajo Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace/Choker that is 15.75" long with hook and clasp, signed A.L. Becenti on the back of the Naja. There are 8 total blossoms each with a raised turquoise stone that is oval and sawtooth bezel set with a rope accents at the base and then an oval like lower tiered rim. The Naja has a stone at the ends also sawtooth bezel set with a matching setting to the stones on the squash blossoms at the top center on the inside and outside of the Naja. Weight is 82.20 grams. This was acquired through a Pennsylvania Estate. It has the usual double row of hand made round beads also called "Navajo Pearls" - very labor intensive - that becomes a single row of beads after the squash blossoms end to the clasps. Very nice quality and a beauty. Sterling was tested on both the Naja and the beads and tests clearly as sterling. Very good condition. (Lot. Loc.C.17X5).
