Sterling silver originated in Europe to be used as currency in the 12th century, after which its purity was slowly regulated by kingdoms such as England as time passed on. Sterling was widely used in Colonial America as currency, and gained popularity as cutlery in the late 19th century and early 20th century, but then began to wane in popularity around World War II when labor costs rose and simpler machine-made pieces came into favor. Native American tribes learned the art of silversmithing from Spanish explorers, and have been perfecting the fine art of silver jewelry creation for more than a century.
Our Native American Indian silver necklaces look great on everyone, and are subtle enough to avoid overwhelming your look while offering just enough sparkle and shine to accentuate those cooler tones. We have a wide selection of design elements so you can find the piece that suits you. Our Native American silver necklaces are designed by award-winning artists and feature styles such as multi-strand necklaces, silver bead necklaces, necklaces with pendants and etched designs, stamped collar necklaces, and silver necklaces mixed with 14K gold.
