Silver Turquoise Jewelry – The Turquoise

Our original interest was Turquoise. We began collecting Turquoise over 40 years ago and began going to various Turquoise Mines in Nevada. We met many great old Turquoise Miners that eagerly taught us how to mine, process and grade Turquoise. We went on to collect high grade Turquoise from many of the best Turquoise Mines knowing that the highest grade Turquoise was very hard to come by. We also knew that Silver Turquoise Jewelry with high quality Turquoise gemstones was in high demand and it came naturally to us to seek out the finest quality Turquoise we could find and latch onto it.

Quality Silver Turquoise Jewelry

Today, Durango Silver Company produces some of the finest quality Silver Jewelry coming out of the Southwest. The rarity of the Turquoise Gemstones that we use in our Silver Jewelry cannot be matched as not many people had the in-site to collect the fine quality Turquoise that we did in the early years of our lives. High quality Turquoise has become scarce and ever increasingly rare and now all those years of collecting that high grade has become important to our business.

Our Specialty is Silver Turquoise Jewelry with exceptionally high quality gem grade Turquoise. We hope you will take a look at our Silver Turquoise Jewelry and take extra note to the fabulous Turquoise Gemstones that we use in our Silver Turquoise Jewelry.

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.

Silver Turquoise Jewelry

Turquoise Jewelry has been made worldwide for, literally, thousands of years. In fact, the Cairo Museum in Cairo, Egypt has Silver Turquoise Jewelry carbon dated prior to 5,500 B.C. Native American Indians have made Sterling Turquoise Jewelry with beads for well over a thousand years and Silver Turquoise Jewelry began with the Navajo Indians of the American Southwest around 1870.

American Turquoise Jewelry was well accepted by the American public shortly after the Navajo Indians started creating their Silver Turquoise Jewelry designs. It is believed Indian Traders first took Native American Indian Sterling Silver Turquoise Jewelry to the booming Southern California by the 1880′s and it was well accepted there. By the mid 1890′s, the Grand Canyon had become well exposed by President Roosevelt and the Railroad was in full swing. Tourist came to the Southwest and took silver Turquoise Jewelry made by the Native American Indians home with them as their favoured souvenir from the American Southwest and the Grand Canyon.

There have been several Silver Turquoise Jewelry booms since its introduction to the American public in the 1800′s. The biggest Turquoise Jewelry boom was in the 1970′s as many major publications including Arizona Highways spurred a tremendous amount of interest by the public for this beautiful and Native American handcrafted art.
