During my family trip to Arizona in November 2010, my mom and I were obsessed with all of the Southwestern jewelry, especially any & all things turquoise. I was on a mission to find a squash blossom necklace, a widely made piece by the Zuni tribe, characterized by blossom beads on each side and a large crescent in the middle. Each one I saw was better than the rest, gorgeous, one-of-a-kind...and expensive! I decided to hold out and look online at home, and scored a piece from Ruby Lane for less than half of what I would've paid in Arizona.

Anthropologie is now selling these unique, vintage pieces on their website! If you are looking for a splurge, these are my favorites:
If you're on the hunt for something a little less, I suggest perusing websites like Ruby Lane, eBay, and even Etsy.
