If you ever encounter a woman wearing a fabulous squash blossom necklace, we implore you to ask her where she got it. Not only will she be flattered – everyone loves a compliment! – we’re willing to bet our Betz it has an origin story she’s more than happy to share.

Inherited it from a beloved grandmother. A token to commemorate a milestone moment; a graduation gift, a wedding bequest, a push present. A souvenir splurge from a spur-of-the-moment road trip. Or, if they’re jewelry junkies like us, maybe they’ll regale you with the tale of what they forwent to get it, like the time we decided the washing machine would have to wait.

A squash blossom is an investment piece. It’s something you can love for life (they’ve yet to go out of style in more than 100 years) and it has the potential to become your signature, that memorable statement piece that everyone associates with your style. It’s not a flippant buy. There is something about a squash blossom that speaks to you; there’s a draw, a desire, a destiny even, that sparks when you encounter a squash that was meant for you. It just feels right. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, it’s almost like falling in love. Every squash has a soulmate, and every squash has a story.

While it is true that oftentimes the squash finds you, it certainly helps if you keep your eyes (and heart) open for the one that might be meant for you. And though we have certainly been known to surprise ourselves by falling in love with one we never expected (hello, a multi-colored heart squash?! Who would’ve thought), when you’re on the hunt it does help to have an idea in mind of what you’re looking for in your dream squash. Do you want daintyor the bigger the better? Long and lovely or elegant opera-length? Are you in the market for a chic sterling silver or are southwestern stones a must-have? And if stones, are you seeking traditional turquoise or something more out of the box like a classic coral or the ultra-versatile mother of pearl? Do you want a traditional squash silhouette or something totally unlike any other squash? Vintage, Old Pawn, or contemporary? The possibilities are endless, and we promise there’s one out there that’s just right for you. Oh, and the best part? Unlike human soulmates, you can have an infinite number of squashes!

Never knew about this before we came to the USA from South Africa. Absolutely gorgeous! Price way too high for my ZAR, though, and I dont wear costume jewelery!
