Turquoise American Indian Necklaces

We began our business in the late 1960’s as Turquoise minors and collectors spending a lot of time in Arizona and Nevada collecting America’s best Turquoise. By the early 1970’s, we started having our Turquoise made into American Indian Necklaces as well as other American Indian Jewelry. At those days some of the famous old Turquoise Mines were still running such as the Bisbee Turquoise Mine, Morenci Turquoise Mine, Indian Mountain Turquoise Mine, Stormy Mountain Turquoise Mine, Lander Blue Turquoise Mine, Lone Mountain Turquoise Mine and the Blue Gem Turquoise Mine. We went around to all of these mining districts to find the best Turquoise available coming out of the mines. We lived in Albuquerque and had a small cutting shop where we brought our Turquoise back and cut it into Turquoise Cabochons. I remember getting a large parcel of Lander Blue Turquoise for $6.00 per carat, having it made into several American Indian Necklaces and thought we were doing great by selling a large American Indian Squash Blossom Necklace for $2500.00 – just the stones in that necklace would easily bring $50,000.00 today.

American Indian Necklaces – Investment

 I can tell you now with great certainty that quality American Indian Necklaces with high quality American Turquoise will do the same thing in the next 20 years. There has become a major shortage of Turquoise in the marketplace today, values of natural American Turquoise have tripled in the last two years and due to government mining restrictions, it is very unlikely turquoise mining will resume in America until it gets extremely valuable. Quality American Indian Necklaces as well as all other high quality American Indian Jewelry will escalate in value dramatically in the very short future!

Durango Silver Company deals in the highest quality American Indian Jewelry and we always have a good selection of quality American Indian Bracelets on hand.
