Durango Silver Company would like to invite you to view our information presentation on Indian Turquoise Jewelry brief as well as our Indian Turquoise Jewelry page within our site.

Indian Turquoise Jewelry began when the Spaniards came up from the south (Mexico) in search of Gold. The Navajo People admired the fancy silverwork the Spaniards had on their horses and one man named Atsidi Sani, a blacksmith, convinced the Spaniards to teach him how to work silver. It is believe Atsidi actually started working with silver around 1870-1873. Navajo Silver and Turquoise started showing up around 1880.

This is a very interesting topic and we have a great presentation for you to view.
