You may or may not know that this color of natural Turquoise is very hard to come by.  This type of Emerald Green or Forest Green Turquoise has always been hard to find, but is becoming even harder to find these days as almost all the Turquoise mines world wide have been shut down for one reason or another.  Having said that, the Military Green Turquoise is one of the most famous looks from the Royston Turquoise mine in Nevada, USA.

Just like the Turquoise its self, Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry is very hard to come by due to the lack of Turquoise cabochons available to jewelers as well as the fact that most jewelers prefer to use blue Turquoise over any other color of Turquoise. Here at Durango Silver Company that is not the case.  We love to make jewelry with natural green Turquoise from Lime Green Turquoise Jewelry to Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry.  So when you are in need of some rare Military Green Royston Turquoise Jewelry or any other color of Turquoise Jewelry keep us in mind.

Silver Gallery

The Durango Silver Gallery operated by Durango Silver Company of Durango, Colorado USA has been in business for nearly 40 years. It is located 3.5 west of Durango’s city center on Hwy 160, which is the gateway to Mesa Verde National Park. We have just completed a presentation page on our Silver Gallery that we think you will enjoy, we invite you to read our story on our Silver Gallery. We have been Silver Jewelry manufacturers and have produced some of the finest Silver Jewelry that has come out of the Southwest in the past 40 years. We actually have two Silver Galleries, one is our brick and Mortar Trading Post that John Hartman built in 1975 and the other is our online Gallery that John, Dillon and Nattarika Hartman have been continuously working on for the past several years.

Durango Silver Gallery

The Durango Silver Gallery is quite unique from other Silver Jewelry Galleries as it is family owned and run. We make most of the Silver Jewelry that we show and sell and the balance of our Silver Jewelry is handmade by Native American Artisans in the local Southwest area of the United States in which we live.

It is actually a historic monument as we have been in business at the same location for most of the years we have been in the Silver Jewelry business. We have an unusual Deer Antler Arch that has been out front of the Silver Gallery since 1976 which has been featured in many travel magazines all over the world. This is most likely the most famous Silver Gallery in the Southwest today.

We opened this Silver Gallery in 1976 after John had taken a year off of making his Silver Jewelry to build a Trading Post to house his Silver Jewelry along with his historic antique Native American Indian and old west collection. The business has been successful for the Hartman’s for several decades now and the family will carry it on into the future.

Silver Gallery

Our Silver Gallery online as well as our Trading Post deals exclusively in Sterling Silver Jewelry handmade in the USA by our family along with the Native American Indians of the Southwest. Here, you will find Silver Rings, Silver Earrings, Silver Bracelets, Silver Pendants, Silver Necklaces and much more. One of the major differences with our Silver Jewelry from others is we are very serious about it being authentic. We use Sterling Silver and our specialty is natural American Turquoise from our collection of over 40 years. We have also mined Turquoise for over 40 years with some of the most famous old school miners of the past as well as mined Turquoise from our own mines located in Nevada, USA.

A trip to our Silver Gallery is a trip back it time to present day. We have antique Indian Turquoise Silver Jewelry from the early years of the trade all the way to the most modern contemporary Silver Jewelry that is popular today. Your visit to our Silver Gallery will be one you will not forget and worthwhile to you as you will learn a lot about the Southwest and how the Silver Jewelry industry is such a part of our culture.

We hope you have enjoyed our blog on our Silver Gallery and you will read more about us on our Silver Gallery educational page.
