Handmade Silver JewelryDurango Silver Company has been producing Handmade Silver Jewelry for nearly 40 years now. Our business is located in the Southwest and that reflects in the Handmade Silver Jewelry that we make and handle.

These Indian Tribes are well known throughout the world for their exceptional Silver work and design. Navajo Silver Jewelry is known for extensive Silver tooling, Zuni Silver Jewelry is known for exceptional lapidary gemstone work and Hopi Silver Jewelry is known for its Silver overlay.

Antique Indian Silver Jewelry

Antique Indian Silver JewelryWe have been in business here in Durango, Colorado for nearly 40 years, we began dealing in Antique Indian Silver Jewelry prior to starting Durango Silver Company. We have just completed a great presentation page on Antique Indian Silver Jewelry that we think you will enjoy if you are interested in Antique Indian items.

To the right is an Antique Indian Silver Concho Belt made approximately 1920. This unique piece of Antique Indian Silver Jewelry can be seen and purchased at our Online Jewelry Gallery.

Antique Indian Silver Jewelry – Fort Defiance Collection

One of the great Antique Indian Silver Jewelry collections we were fortunate in landing was the Fort Defiance Trading Post collection. One fall day in 1982, I was sitting by the fireplace in my Trading Post when Francis Griswold walked in, what a historic day for me! That day led into me purchasing the largest Antique Indian Silver Jewelry in the history of the Southwest. I ultimately purchased over 3000 antique Rings, 800 Bracelets and a load of other Antique Indian Jewelry that had been in the Fort Defiance Trading Post vault since the late 1920’s – it was unreal! Francis was a very early Indian Trader who owned Fort Defiance, Chilchimbito, Wide Ruins and several other Trading Posts from around 1910 until about 1955 when he went into prison. Check out the link above to read this most interesting story.

Free Silver Jewelry

Free Silver Jewelry
Free Silver Jewelry Give Away

Durango Silver Company gives away Free Silver Jewelry once a month to several of the members of our Newsletter group.

Each and every month Durango Silver Company randomly picks several individuals from our Newsletter Group to give away Free Silver Jewelry. We have been doing this now since 2008 and have had great success building our business and making great new friends and business partners doing so. We feel our business benefits as individuals who are given free Silver Jewelry appreciate the quality of our Silver Jewelry and they then pass their discovery of our business on to their friends which eventually become customers of ours, it is a simple and cost effective method of advertising our Silver Jewelry that works for us.

Free Silver Jewelry – Newsletter

We send out a Newsletter periodically when we have something we feel is worth our members time in reading. We do not harp or nag our newsgroup – you can expect about six great newsletters per year and they will be interesting, informative and most likely have great deals on our Silver Jewelry! We do not actually talk about Free Silver Jewelry in our newsletter other then if we have some new ideas or give away Free Silver Jewelry to a large group of individuals as we did in July of 2010 when we choose 50 individuals to give free Silver Jewelry to – we gave away 50 of our new Silver Ring Bands to 50 individuals. One of our newsletters came out shortly after we bought out a local Jewelry manufacturer in New Mexico, we offered our newsgroup first rights on a large amount of Silver Jewelry at our cost which was the spot market price of Silver on the day we purchased the business, I believe we let our newgroup members have the Silver Jewelry for less then $.80 per gram and this was for beautiful Silver Rings, Chains and Necklace sets.

We invite you to join our Silver Jewelry Newsletter now by clicking on this link!

Free Silver Jewelry – Free Turquoise Jewelry

We started our Free Silver Jewelry program after we has great success with our Free Turquoise Jewelryprogram. The free Turquoise Jewelry program was a giant hit for our company as we landed a major rare Turquoise collection due to one of our members turning us onto a lead, a members neighbor had lived in Bisbee, Arizona in the 1960’s, was a minor and had collected over 100 lbs of high grade Bisbee Turquoise from the mine. We purchased the collection and rewarded the gentleman who gave us the lead over $10,000.00, it was a giant awakening for us and we will never forget just how good networking with individual people can be. That one incident took our Turquoise Jewelry giveaway through the roof! We then eagerly started our Free Silver Jewelry program and have already had several great purchasing leads.

We invite you to join our Newsgroup, become one of our friends and associates, we have some great ideas for you to make money from us! Win some Free Silver Jewelry, Free Turquoise Jewelry and gain some great information on the Silver Jewelry business from our prospective here in Durango, Colorado USA.
