This circa 1980's Squash Blossom necklace is reprized to stunning effect with halos of silver and hand-set white (?) diamond. Unique its scale –likely made for a child– the piece is overall much lighter in weight than it would appear, and sits nicely within the decolletage, at --" inner chain length. An exquisite example of both turquoise gems and the craftsmanship that make the vintage jewelry of the Southwest so covetable.
