Squash Blossom Pendant Cast in Sterling On Soft Leather ~ Adjustable
Sweet sterling silver squash blossom ~ Limited Quantity
The symbol of the squash blossom can be found on ancient petroglyphs at the Saguaro National Monument in Arizona. It is believed that the flower symbol that we commonly see in necklaces was brought to the Navajo at the turn of the century, from the 1800s to the 1900s. The blossom is represented with long petals beginning to open and a sphere attached at the base of the flower. The blossom pendant is a representation of the Spanish-Mexican pomegranate and a variation of this design can be found in the motif of Granada, Spain.
In the Americas, Spanish colonial gentlemen wore variations of these pomegranate flower blossoms on their shirts, capes, and trousers as silver adornments. Some squash blossom necklaces that date from the 1880s and 1890s were made with hand-hammered Mexican silver coins.
