Gilbert Nez, a renowned Navajo silversmith, has left an indelible mark on the world of Native American jewelry. His exquisite craftsmanship and unique designs reflecting both traditional and contemporary styles have captivated collectors and enthusiasts alike. His work graces museums, galleries, and private collections across the United States.

Persian turquoise is known for its intense sky-blue to greenish-blue color, often with intricate veining. Originally called piruzeh in Persian, turquoise has immense spiritual value in Persian culture, carrying meanings of victory, triumph, and prosperity. First utilized around 7000 BCE, it has been found in burial sites and deposits all over the country. Today, Persian Turquoise is mostly mined in the Neyshabur deposit in the Razavi Khorasan Provice of northeastern Iran.

This necklace is truly show-stopping, a statement piece that makes for a unique, highly collectible addition to any Southwestern jewelry collection. The squash blossom necklace itself is a reflection of history, art, and culture, and this modern update coupled with the large size of the turquoise stones makes it one of a kind.
