Green Turquoise Jewelry
Green turquoise has been coveted for its use in jewelry for thousands of years due to its beauty and spiritual properties, and has been particularly prized throughout Native American cultures. Green turquoise is formed by the presence of iron in Mother Nature’s complex process that forms turquoise over a million years.
Green turquoise can come in a wide variety of hues, ranging from bright green to ocean green to forest green to all sorts of wonderful blue-green shades. A few pieces of green turquoise jewelry can add a wonderful dimension of organic beauty to anyone’s jewelry collection.

Beautiful Squash Blossom Necklace
Our picture of the day is this beautifully handmade Navajo squash blossom necklace made with genuine sterling silver and real Emerald Valley Turquoise. The inlay itself is carefully set in multiple settings, with think silver lines accenting in-between. It is made with one Naja (the crescent shaped center pendant piece) and a double strand of eight-mm silver round beads nicely placed in regular intervals among the round side of the beautiful center piece. The Naja itself is set with three magnificent inlay settings, and each side of the necklace itself has five settings which are attached to silver petals called squash blossoms. Each of these inlay settings are highlighted by silver beads and carefully hand cut designs. This traditional styled squash blossom necklace is not stiff and flexible.
You will definitely stand out in a crowd wearing this artfully crafted piece that is for sure. This squash blossom necklace is available for purchase from our good friends over at SilverTribe.
