Durango Silver Company produces many types of Silver Necklaces handcrafted in Sterling Silver. We have been producing Silver Necklaces in a Southwestern style for nearly 40 years. Our business has been located in the same place since 1976 where we have a Trading Post that we open for business daily. We are in the heart of the Southwest here in Durango Colorado and in the heart of one of the largest Turquoise capitols in the world. We own five different Turquoise Mines in Nevada and have been collectors of high quality Turquoise for over 40 years. We cut almost all of the gemstones used in our Silver Necklaces and each piece is uniquely handmade to be a one of a kind piece of Silver Jewelry. We invite you to read more about Silver Jewelry on a great informational page we have.
