American Indian Inlay Jewelry
Gemstone Inlay Jewelry is some of the most popular American Jewelry on the market today. Inlay jewelry is made around the world, however it was made popular by Zuni Native American artists during the Route 66 days. In those days the inlay jewelry was mainly made in channels. Some of the finer artisans would get into multi color inlay in one channel. The Zuni artisans would use a classic color scheme of red coral, Turquoise, Mother or Pearl, and black Jet. The would also make designs in different channels with only Turquoise, Coral or Black Jet Inlay Jewelry. Every year their skills would increase and the Zuni would try to out do each other in the intricate patterns in their inlay jewelry. As time went buy American Indian Inlay Jewelry became more and more popular and started to rival Navajo style silver jewelry in sales. Once this happened Native Peoples from other tribes as well as anglo artisans start to make silver inlay jewelry.

New Silver Jewelry Drop Down Subcategories
Now when you surf DurangoSilver.com you will find two upgrades to our website that will make it easier to find the Silver Jewelry you are looking for.
The first upgrade you will notice is that we have divided the categories in our site into subcategories. The change was prompted by the large amount of jewelry in some of the categories that made hard to find particular items. It was also brought on by the diverse selction of silver jewelry that we offer. We did not want people to have surf through all the Turquoise Jewelry to find a plain silver piece. We also wanted people that knew they wanted bead jewelry, inlay jewelry, or Turquoise Jewelry to be able to right to that jewelry and see only that type of American jewelry. Along with this change, if you click into the main category, you will find these pages have changed and feature a thumbnail picture a button for each subcategory, along with a little bit of information on the main category.
