In 1865, a Navajo named Atsidi Sani first learned how to make Navajo Silver Jewelry from the Spanairds who were in the area of the Navajo seeking Silver and Gold. Atsidi Sani began making Navajo Turquoise and Silver Jewelry around 1880 and the market for his Navajo Turquoise and Silver Jewelry was immediately brisk as the Navajo people loved to adorn themselves in Turquoise and now Turquoise in Silver Jewelry.

It was not long and Traders to the Navajo started moving into the area and opening Trading Posts to trade with them. Navajo Turquoise and Silver Jewelry was one of the most important trade items to the Indian Traders. The Indian Traders took the Navajo Silver Jewelry and Navajo Turquoise and Silver Jewelry to Southern California, which was in a giant boom, and it was immediately accepted into the Californian culture.  Shortly after, the Grand Canyon became a National Park and tourism began in the Southwestern United States. Navajo Turquoise Jewelry became the most important trade item to the tourists and all wanted to take a piece of Navajo Turquoise Jewelry home with them for their souvenier.

Today, Navajo Turquoise and Silver Jewelry has come a long way and it has also become an American heritage.
