Pawn Indian JewelryOld Pawn Turquoise Jewelry

Durango Silver Company has a good informational page on old Indian Turquoise Jewelry. Pawn Indian Jewelry began in the late 1800’s. Often, Native Americans would need quick cash for living expenses and they did not want to sell their personal belongings, so, they would pawn their Indian Jewelry, Rugs, Pottery or anything they had of value. In most cases the Indian Traders had trade goods such as food, clothing and living essentials that they would then sell to the Indians as a convenience as well as another means for the Indian Trader to make money.

We invite you to view our presentation on Pawn Indian Jewelry as well as our full story on Pawn Turquoise Jewelry.
