Turquoise Beaded Jewelry

Turquoise Beaded Jewelry – American Turquoise Beaded Jewelry from the Southwest began about 200 B.C. after the Anasazi Indians discovered Turquoise.  By 1200 A.D. the Anasazi and Chaco Indians had moved from their ancient Pueblos to the Rio Grande Valley of what is now known as New Mexico. The Santo Domingo Indians carried on by using Turquoise from the Cerrillos Turquoise Mines  to make Turquoise Beaded Jewelry.

The Santo Domingo Indians sold their Turquoise Beaded Jewelry in Santa Fe in the early years to the Trade on the Santa Fe Trail and by the early 1900′s to tourists who came to the Southwest. You can read more on Santa Domingo Turquoise Beaded Jewelry here.

Today, the Turquoise Beaded Jewelry is stronger then ever as the Turquoise Bead Market has expanded to a global audience. In recent years, China has taken over the production of making Turquoise Beads and they ship their Turquoise Beads worldwide to individuals as well as Jewelry manufacturers that produce Turquoise Bead Jewelry from them.

American Turquoise is also shipped to China to have made into Turquoise Beads and then the Turquoise Beads are shipped back to the U.S. to distributors that sell them to the Santo Domingo Indians as well as Turquoise Jewelry manufacturers and individuals. The quality of Turquoise Beads as well as the Turquoise Beaded Jewelry that is made from them is of great concern to discriminate buyers and much attention is payed to the authenticity of the Turquoise used to make the Turquoise Beads as well as the quality of the cut of the beads.

Durango Silver Company has been buying Turquoise Beaded Jewelry from the Santo Domingo Indians for over forty years and are very familiar with high quality Turquoise Beaded Jewelry. We now seek fine quality authentic Turquoise Beads and produce one of a kind Turquoise Beaded Jewelry for our own market.

You can be assured you are getting the highest quality authentic Turquoise Beads when buying your Turquoise Beaded Jewelry from Durango Silver Company of Durango, Colorado USA.
