Southwestern Vintage Silver Jewelry

Silver Jewelry began in the Southwest when Atsidi Sani learned how to Silversmith from the Spaniards in about 1865. The Spaniards were in this area in search of Silver and Gold. The Vintage Silver Jewelry from this period has now become priceless, meaning it is very valuable as well as being very historical and an American heritage. Vintage Turquoise Silver Jewerly is absolutely fabulous and sooooo historic being made by Native American Indians is a special period of time in American history. This Vintage Silver Jewelry should be some of the most collectible antique American Silver Jewelry.
