Native American tribes have created some of the most iconic jewelry of all time. Here at Southwest Silver Gallery, we are proud to do our part to keep that rich cultural tradition alive by sourcing and selling authentic fetish necklaces and pendants from Zuni, Navajo, Hopi, and Santo Domingo tribes throughout Arizona and New Mexico. If you're looking to add something unique to your fine jewelry collection, consider our gorgeous Native American silver feather pendants, or any Zuni fetish necklaces that catch your eye.
What Are Fetishes?
Fetishes are objects that are crafted from bone, wood, shell, stone, or other materials. According to legend, fetishes have magical powers that are given to their human owners. Many Native American tribes create fetishes, but it is the American Southwest tribes that are most famous for them, and especially the Zuni. You will notice that many fetish jewelry pieces have animal themes, such as our Native American silver feather pendants or our mother of pearl bear necklace. These intricately carved pieces of jewelry are guaranteed to be treasured for a lifetime.
Own an Authentic Work of Art
Our Zuni fetish necklaces are prized for their chic, authentic fashion aesthetic, but there's more to them than that. Long ago, fetishes were made for American Indian hunting, rain, harvest, religious, and initiation ceremonies. These days, people wear them to increase luck, attract members of the opposite sex, for strength and healing, for protection from diseases, and much more. To own one of our authentic, one-of-a-kind fetishes necklaces or pendants is to own a piece of Native American history and legend.
Genuine Locally Sourced Jewelry
In the past, American Indian tribes used jewelry as a form of currency. In order to improve the value of their pieces, tribes worked diligently to hone their craft, passing along tribal secrets and techniques from generation to generation. Today, Native American jewelry is truly unrivaled as far as quality and attention to detail go. It is critical that we mention that our fine jewelry is never imported. We source our authentic pieces from legitimate local tribes, and most of our stones include the hallmark of the artist. Our Native American silver feather pendants, turqouise bear pendants, and other high-quality pieces are made with pride by master artisans who put their hearts into their craft - and it shows.
