WE'VE RECEIVED MANY QUESTIONS ABOUT "OLD" & "DEAD" PAWN AND TURQUOISE AND WILL INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WITH EACH sale: As used in the pawn trade, the terms "old" or dead" pawn have absolutely nothing to do with the age or vintage of any particular item. A pawn item goes "dead" or becomes "old" when the person who pawned the item does not pay off their loan on the item in the stated amount of time mandated by state law. At the point the item goes dead it becomes the property of the pawnbroker, who then usually offers it for sale to the public. Native American jewelry can be and is pawned in any and all vintages including brand new for a variety of reasons. We feel there are three types of turquoise you should concern yourself with. The first is BLOCK, which is simply dyed, colored plastic. It's found in fake Native American jewelry usually but not exclusively manufactured these days in Asia. The subject of type number two, COMPOSITE, is much more complex. Composite is made by taking the remnants of the natural turquoise cutting process, the small pieces and powder, and then mixing these remnants with epoxy at high temperature. The result is uniform in color and can be cut and polished to any shape just as natural stones. The majority of the trade in composite turquoise Native American sterling silver jewelry is not meant to be deceptive. One large aspect of the trade is the fact that stones of uniform color are preferred by probably the majority of Navajo and Zuni women and girls. There are other economic factors as well. There is a large, legitimate trade in this type of turquoise jewelry in the Southwest. Very attractive and expensive jewelry is created with composite. Very unattractive and cheap as well. For obvious economic reasons, the pawn shops of the Southwest are well stocked with jewelry pieces set with composite turquoise. It's a matter of taste and value. For reasons of clarity, we don't deal in composite turquoise or coral. NATURAL turquoise is, of course, self-explanatory. It's interesting to note that almost all turquoise set in Native American jewelry in the modern era is coated with a shellac-like substance. Most uncoated blue turquoise will turn green over time. This coating is simply to preserve the color of the stones and to a degree protect the turquoise. Many of us have at least seen photographs of multi-stoned Native bracelets from the earlier 1900's where the stones were all shades of blue and green. Many of the bracelets of that age were uncoated. DATING JEWELRY : Native American jewelry makers in large numbers started signing their jewelry pieces in the 1970's, although there are many pieces created in the 70's and later that are unsigned.
