Durango Silver Company of Durango Colorado has been producing some of the finest Southwest Jewelry for over 37 years. Our emphasis has always been on quality, we use the highest quality natural Turquoise available in our Southwest Jewely as we have been collecting Turquoise from extinct Turquoise Mines for over 40 years. We have one of best natural Turquoise collections in the Southwest and we use it in our Southwest Jewelry.

The Southwest Jewelry look

Southwest Jewelry has a look that is not found in Jewelry anywhere else in the world, its appearance is very natural looking because it is handmade and incorporates a distinct look found only from the Southwestern United States. Southwest Jewelry makers use a lot of Turquoise in their designs and then accent it with stamped, engraved and filigree silver work that gives this Jewelry its Southwest look.
