Native American Indian Jewelry, Indian Jewelry, Native Indian Silver Jewelry
Native Indian Jewelry from the American Southwest is an American heritage that has been handed down to the American people from the Native American Indians and Native Peoples of Southwestern United States since about 1865. The Native American Indians as well as many others in the Southwestern regions of the United States have made an industry out of Native Indian Turquoise Jewelry and it is respected worldwide for its uniqueness. Native Indian Jewelry is generally made with American Turquoise from Arizona and Nevada and set in Silver. There are many types of Native Indian Turquoise Jewelry which is made by Native Navajo Indians, Zuni Indians, Hopi Indians, Hispanics and Anglos of the American Southwest. Native Indian Silver Jewelry is unusually different from all other Silver Jewelry made elsewhere in the world, it is an American tradition and all Americans should appreciate this wonderful American Heritage.
