For centuries, people have worn necklaces. These primitive necklaces were made of stones, bones, shells and animal teeth. Later on people discovered metals and began using silver, gold, and other metals to produce many diverse necklaces to wear. These necklaces were sometimes indicators of social rank as well as fashion during that time.
In the 1800’s, Navajos were introduced to silver and began making necklaces for personal adornment. Many Navajo silversmiths began making “Squash Blossom” necklaces. This beautiful necklace always has a "Naja" pendant that was copied from the Spanish. The "Naja" pendant became popular and collectible piece of jewelry.
