Silver Jewelry Store

 Durango Silver Company has been in business as a Silver Jewelry Store here in Durango, Colorado USA since 1976. We manufacture, buy and sell Silver Jewelry, primarily made here in the Southwestern United States. Our Silver Jewelry Store handles Native American Indian Silver Jewelry and we produce many other types of Jewelry made with authentic Sterling Silver.  We have our walk-in Silver Jewelry Store as well as our online Silver Jewelry Store where we retail our products to the public.

We have created a great presentation on our Silver Jewelry Store and our foundation, we invite you to view and read our Silver Jewelry Store informational presentation.

We have been Silver Jewelry designers for over 40 years and are native to Southwestern United States. For many years, John and Estell Hartman, founders of Durango Silver Company, designed and produced Sterling Silver Jewelry in Albuquerque, NM which is where they began their Silver Jewelry business which led into building their Silver Jewelry Store in Durango. In 1974, John and Estell moved to Durango, Colorado and in 1976 opened their retail Silver Jewelry Store which is still in business today.  

Silver Jewelry Store – Family owned

In the years to come, John and Estell had two children, Dillon and Crystal. They both grew up in the Silver Jewelry Store environment and this business is still very much a part of both of their lives. Dillon continued to work in the family Silver Jewelry Store business when he graduated from Durango High School and Crystal went on to College in Boulder, Colorado where she got a degree in fine arts. Today, Dillon and Crystal both work in the Silver Jewelry business, help in the Silver Jewelry Store and are also working in many other facets of the Silver Jewelry business.

Dillon  married to Nattarika in 2007, she had been working in the Jewelry business in Chiangmai, Thailand and had also went to college in Thailand to recieve a degree in the arts. Nattarika works with Dillon building our online Silver Jewelry Store daily as well as making Silver Jewelry. Nattarika has become an integral part of our Silver Jewelry Store and we are proud to have her in our family.

Quality Silver Jewelry Store

We began in the Silver Jewelry business producing high quality Silver Jewelry from the American Southwest from Albuquerque, N.M. Our love was American Turquoise and this is how we became involved in producing Silver Jewelry which led into our building our Silver Jewelry Store. Early on, Estell and John began collecting high quality Turquoise, they soon began hunting for quantities of Turquoise in Nevada and Arizona and had amassed a substantial collection of exceptional Turquoise. The next step was naturally to get into the Silver Jewelry business to use their Turquoise. John developed a gemstone cutting shop in Albuquerque, sold the medium grade Turquoise gemstones to the Native American Jewelers and had the high grade Turquoise gemstones set into high quality Navajo Silver Jewelry. As time went on, John and Estell continued to produce some of the finest quality Turquoise Silver Jewelry coming out of Albuquerque and their Silver Jewelry business flourished due to the very high quality Silver Jewelry they produced.

When John and Estell moved their business to Durango,  Colorado their intentions were to build a quality Silver Jewelry Store. They worked hard and ultimately John built our Silver Jewelry Store which we still have to date. Durango Silver Company is now known to be one of the finest Trading Posts in the American Southwest and has been noted by many fine publications and continues to be a  leading Silver Jewelry Store in the American west!
