At Southwest Silver Gallery, we strive to be your go-to source for authentic, one-of-a-kind jewelry of the absolute highest quality. Here you'll find a wide range of unique Native American jewelry to satisfy every taste, and our inventory is constantly expanding.
Our bestselling high-grade turquoise jewelry is sourced only from local tribes, so nothing you see is imported from anywhere else.
With a plethora of unique Native American jewelry to choose from - all made available by the Navajo, Zuni, Hopi, Santo Domingo and other Indian tribes in the Southwest - we seek to ensure that all of your needs and desires for high-quality, authentic jewelry will be met.
To gain a deeper understanding of our selection and the multitude of options made available to you, let's explore a couple of the Indian tribes whose masterful handiwork enabled us to make this gallery possible for you.
The Navajo tribe consists of over 160,000 members and represents the largest Southwest American Indian reservation, as well as the nation's biggest tribe.
Navajo jewelry is most prevalent throughout the jewelry trade - displaying superb silver work, stone cutting and stone setting. They use a wide variety of gemstones in their work including genuine turquoise, spiny oyster shell, coral, jet and amber, among others.
Today, the squash blossom and concha belt are the most known form of Navajo silversmithing, along with bracelets, earrings, necklaces, watch bands, rings, and other forms of high-grade turquoise jewelry, which are all available throughout the Southwest Silver Gallery.
The Zuni reservation has around 6,000 members, and their ancestors have been making Zuni Indian jewelry for over one thousand years. There are approximately two hundred Zuni craftsmen at this time, and they are known for their intricate stone cutting: inlay, petite point, needlepoint and detailed stone carvings known as fetishes.
The Zuni people commonly work with Sleeping Beauty turquoise, jet and onyx, while being famously known for their fine inlay work that leads to such beautiful and unique Native American jewelry. Designs are typically of Zuni symbols, such as this Don Dewa Zuni Sun Face Inlay Watch band with Spinner, and their scenic and micro-inlay pieces are truly one-of-a-kind.
High Grade Natural Turquoise
High-grade turquoise jewelry is the cream of the crop, taking the best polish while being the absolute hardest grade to come by. This turquoise can be found in all shades from apple green to sky blue, with the contrast between the mother rock and color of the turquoise magnifying the beauty and allure of each jewel.
While there is an overwhelming amount of fake turquoise out there, you can set all concerns and apprehensions behind with Southwest Silver Gallery.
More than anything, we pride ourselves on our trustworthiness and knowledge, blessing each customer with the assurance that every bestselling item in our gallery is not only authentic and unique, but also of the absolute highest quality and grade.
