A squash blossom necklace is a Navajo necklace centered by an upside down crescent (or naja), accented by large flowering silver beads (or squash blossoms.) Naja is the name the Navajo gave to a symbol believed to have originated in the Middle East in ancient times. Like some many symbols, it was created as a talisman for protection, with the Moors affixing it to their horses’ bridles to ward off the evil eye.

To the Navajo, turquoise is viewed as a piece of the sky that has fallen to earth. Spiritually, turquoise is considered a stone of wholeness, promoting a sense of unity of the self and a oneness with all that surrounds us.
