Durango Silver Company specializes in Southwestern Styled Gemstone Silver Jewelry which is quite different from that produced elsewhere around the world. The gemstone of choice and often the dominant gemstone in Gemstone Silver Jewelry made in this region is Turquoise. Turquoise is a neutral colored gemstone  which means it goes great with many other colored gemstones. It looks great with Red Coral, Purple Sugilite, Orange Spiny Oyster Shell, Black Onyx, Blue Lapis, Opal, Lime Green Gaspeite and most faceted gemstone. Gemstone Silver Jewelry from the Southwest is a great choice in Jewelry for Americans as it is a National Heritage.
