Navajo silversmith Monica Smith creates stunning pieces of sterling silver jewelry. Her favorite creations are in the form of squash blossoms and Navajo pearls most often enhanced with a circle of turquoise.

These lovely squash blossom style earrings are most unique. The center of each earring has a row of eight tiny turquoise cabs encircling it. Each of the cabs is set with saw tooth bezels keeping the cabochon stone tight and secure. The bottoms of the earrings flare out in the iconic squash blossom style.

Old style squash blossom earrings set with a row of lovely turquoise stones are perfect to wear alone or with your favorite necklace. DR 1567 is a strand of beads set with tiny turquoise cabs just like these earrings, and would be just the thing to set off these earrings.

Condition: Excellent – original condition.
Provenance: Acquired from a private collector in New Mexico.
