Zuni Silver Jewelry

The Zuni Indians are well known worldwide for their Zuni Silver Jewelry with exceptional stone work. The Zuni’s generally make three types of Silver Jewelry, Petit point, Needlepoint and Inlaid Silver Jewelry. Petit Point is where the Zuni’s hand cut tiny round, oval, square, rectangle or triangular gemstones and mount them in Sterling Silver Jewelry items such as Zuni Rings, Zuni Bracelets and Zuni Earrings. Needlepoint is much like Petit Point but the stones are cut in the shape of an eye of a needle and this is why they call the Zuni Silver Jewelry made with these stones Needlepoint. Zuni Inlay Silver Jewelry is where the Zuni’s make a piece of Silver Jewelry with channels and then hand cut individual gemstones to fit in these channels, Zuni Inlay Silver Jewelry as well as all Zuni Silver Jewelry is beautiful.

We have also just purchased a very nice collection of old Zuni Jewelry that came out of the Shonto Trading Post which we will be putting up shortly.

The Zuni Indians are located just south of the Navajo Indian Reservation which is about 32 mile S.E. of Gallup New Mexico. Zuni Jewelry began around 1880 when the Navajo Silversmiths taught them the trade. The original Zuni Jewelry was similar to Navajo Jewelry until they started working with Turquoise and creating Zuni Turquoise Jewelry. The Zuni took to lapidary work and began incorporating Turquoise in very unique designs into their Jewelry.
