Navajo Turquoise Rings have become highly valued by Jewelry collectors worldwide and since the introduction of the Internet the demand for Navajo Turquoise Rings has escalated dramatically. Durango Silver Company specializes in high quality Turquoise Jewelry made in America and Navajo Turquoise Rings are our pleasure!

It was created by making the Silver Band Ring with a channel or void where the gemstones will be inlaid into. The artisan/stonecutter then individually cuts these tiny slivers and places then in the voids to make the design, once this is completed he will glue the stones in permanently. This is tedious work that takes a skilled artisan. Navajo inlaid Turquoise bands are a great Native American Ring that you will enjoy for years to come.
