Old Pawn Native American Jewelry refers to the pieces that were made, worn and treasured as not only adornment, protection of good health, but also as portable wealth. Not having ready access to banks, or cash money, this jewelry would often serve as the family "reserve" or "emergency" fund. In times of need, this silver and turquoise jewelry could be easily used as security with an authorized trader (pawned) for cash to meet the current crisis. Then, when the crops came in, or the sheep were shorn, the jewelry could be redeemed and take its place back in the family.
Unfortunately on occasions this jewelry would not be redeemed as planned. The lender would keep it for the agreed amount of time, and if the loan was not paid off by the agreed date, the Pawn Shop, or Trader would be authorized to sell the jewelry. Often, when the elders of the family die, their items are pawned and the money is divided among the family members.
Broken Arrow is an extremely high grade variscite turquoise mine owned by David and Kenneth Otteson. The brilliant green is almost unmatched in the variscite turquoise world. Broken Arrow turquoise quantities are starting to diminish as the mine is reaching the end of stone production. Like the white buffalo turquoise, once a relatively easy stone to acquire, Broken Arrow turquoise is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain, especially the highest grades. Its rarity and beautiful color make this a valuable addition to any turquoise collection.
