Silver Jewelry

silver jewelrySilver Jewelry from the Southwest is different than Silver Jewelry made in other areas of the United States and the world. There is a certain flair about Southwestern Silver Jewelry that makes it so unique. It is in its origin from the Spaniards who originally brought the art of Silversmithing to this region in the mid 1860′s. The Spaniards taught a Navajo Indian by the name of Atsidi Sani how to work with Silver and shortly after Silver Jewelry became very popular here in the Southwest. By the 1890′s, Navajo’s, Hispanics and Anglo’s were making Silver Jewelry for a market that was relentless. Check out our informational page on Navajo Silver Jewelry History.

Southwestern Silver Jewelry

As people moved into Southwest, Silver Jewelry and Silver Turquoise Jewelry was purchased and worn by most people who lived in this area. Silversmiths and and Silver Jewelry manufacturers sprung up throughout Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado to make Silver Rings, Silver Bracelets, Silver Earrings, Silver Pendants and Silver Necklaces to fill a market that was growing by leaps and bounds fueld by the Californians and the influx of tourism to the Southwest. Turquoise also became very popular once the Grand Canyon became a National Park and a major attraction bringing a tremendous amount of tourism to the Southwest. A very large industry began producing Turquoise Silver Rings, Turquoise Silver Bracelets, Turquoise Silver Earrings, Turquoise Silver Pendants and Turquoise Silver Necklaces which were a major hit in Hollywood and then throughout southern California.
