Native American Jewelry Origins
Throughout their history, Native Americans from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Coast have used their local natural resources for manufacturing Native American Indian jewelry and art. Used for both utilitarian and ornamental purposes, the variations of American Indian jewelry are as rich and diverse as the cultures that created them. Native American jewelry and art arose from different paths depending on economic and spiritual beliefs. For instance, the Iroquois used beadwork as a means of trade, and Navajo Indian Jewelry making was a source for economic survival and tribal identity. Other tribes such as the Apache, Zuni, and Santo Domingo Indian Tribes wore jewelry to communicate historical successes, spiritual favor, and to gain supernatural powers. You will find many examples of turquoise jewelry worn by many of the tribes in our Native American jewelry catalog.
An abundance of semi precious stones allowed the Southwestern Navajo, Zuni and Hopi Tribes to develop the skills necessary to become master artisans of these beautiful gemstones. With the introduction of western civilization, during the nineteenth century, the Spanish introduced the silversmith craft to the Native American Navajo Tribe. Experienced jewelers integrated both old and new concepts to develop some of the most recognizable pieces of Native American Jewelry seen today. From turquoise pendants to turquoise necklaces, bolos to belt buckles, the Navajo have intertwined the beauty of silver, turquoise, and other stones that have created a combination of metal and rocks that have been a constant source of beauty throughout history. These combinations have generated some of the most breathtaking jewelry pieces ever created.
