Quality Silver Jewelry is different than standard production silver jewelry that you will find in department stores, typical tourist stores, cut rate web sites, flea markets and other marketers that are working in a highly competitive market. There is literally tons of mass produced, machine made Silver Jewelry that is intended for certain type of buyers and this is a good market and Silver Jewelry in this class is in great demand, however, this jewelry is mass produced and millions of copies are made to be distributed around the world. We do not make or handle this type of Silver Jewelry, we produce handcrafted, artisan made quality Silver Jewelry that is unique and one of a kind pieces of Jewelry Art.

Quality Silver Jewelry with American Turquoise

Silver Turquoise Jewelry from the Southwestern United States is world reknown as a style of Silver Jewelry that is unique and unusual from this region of the world. Turquoise and Silver Jewelry began in the Southwest when Atsidi Sani learned the trade from the Spaniards in the mid 1860′s, Atsidi Sani created the first Navajo Silver Jewelry which was of this Southwestern style and it quickly became so popular that he taught other Navajo’s to become Silversmiths to help fill the desires of this great new market.  Atsidi Sani as well as many new Navajo Silversmiths worked hard to produce quality Silver Jewelry as well as quality Silver and Turquoise Jewelry from those days forward. Today, there is a giant market for Turquoise and Silver Jewelry and many of the buyers collect the highest quality Silver Jewelry for investment and it beauty.
