Making A Statement: The Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace

Always in style in the Southwest these American Indian iconic necklaces entered mainstream fashion in the 1970's, including with celebrities like Cher and Raquel Welch.   I've noticed that turquoise squash blossom necklaces are popular once again, and appearing around the necks of the fashionable and famous like Kyle Richards, Katy Perry & Anne Hathaway, who just wore one a couple of weeks ago to another celebrity's wedding.  I got one over a year ago, just because I love them.  Summer is a great time to wear them, so time to get one and make it a summer staple.

You can find authentic vintage ones for thousands of dollars, but there are fashion jewelry examples for under $100,  I got my small version from The Southwest Indian Foundation catalog, where every purchase helps impoverished Native Americans.

And P.S. I've posted about this necklace before the recent resurgence in popularity, but thought it deserved another look.  Southwestern Style
