      Gorgeous squash blossom necklace. To determine the value, is it sterling? Is it marked? I love the turquoise and the Naja is lovely. My suggestion would be to find an antique dealer who specializes in Native American jewelry for a good appraisal.

      Definitely get this to a jeweler specializing in Southwestern work. No way we could tell you much, since we can't tell what the age, stones, metal or marks are - and you'd need a written appraisal for insurance. Good luck!

      Since it is squash blossom - that makes it Navajo. An unusual choice of Tourq. as it has so much copper deposit in it. Looks like very old techniques. I would choose a really good dealer to evaluate this.

      From what I can see it is a nice squash. The quality of the photos does not lend itself to giving you an accurate idea as to what it is worth.

      If you would like more information then you will need to post more detailed photos (especially of the beads), the weight in grams, the general size of the stones and length of the necklace, and any and all provenance or history about the piece that you many have.
