This is a striking vintage Navajo all silver pair of earrings. These earrings are superior as they are beautiful silver squashes. Each earring measures around 3/4" X 3/8". I absolutely love the superior detailing of these simplistic earrings. The squash blossom pattern is a distinctive and iconic design found in Navajo jewelry. Its origins can be traced back to the late 19th century when the Navajo people began incorporating Spanish-influenced motifs into their traditional jewelry-making techniques. The squash blossom motif itself is believed to have been inspired by the pomegranate blossom, which was a common design element in Spanish and Moorish art. When the Spanish arrived in the Southwest, they introduced new plants and agricultural practices to the Native American tribes, including the cultivation of squash. The Navajo people admired the blossoms of the squash plant and incorporated their shape and beauty into their jewelry designs. The squash blossom pattern quickly became popular among the Navajo people, and it continues to be one of the most recognizable and sought-after designs in Native American jewelry. Over time, Navajo silversmiths have added their own artistic interpretations and variations to the pattern, incorporating different gemstones, intricate stampwork, and other decorative elements.Today, the squash blossom design remains a significant symbol of Navajo culture and craftsmanship. It is highly valued not only for its aesthetic beauty but also for its cultural and historical significance. Navajo jewelry featuring the squash blossom pattern is treasured by collectors and enthusiasts worldwide, serving as a testament to the rich heritage and artistic traditions of the Navajo people. Sterling silver. Cir. Mid century . The earrings weigh around 3 grams.
