Most Hopi, Zuni and Navajo reservation Indians (The BIG Three) and many other Traders converted their turquoise and silverjewelry into cash....... When in need of money or commodities their assets are used as securities for loans......... At times the trading post vault is the safest place in which to keep valuables........ In this case theNative Americanpawns their items for a minimum loan of cashand is happy to pay the interest rate in return for the security of his goods...... If articles are not redeemed after the contractual length of time, it becomes " Old Pawn " and may be sold by the pawn shop trader for whatever the market will allow.

Just a little about our experience in this field of Native American Jewelry. We have lived and worked in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Utah and Colorado, I used to work in the turquoise and copper mines in Arizona for 12 years Tunneling in Texas 10 years, Mining in Colorado 15 years and have been around turquoise jewelry over 45 years, so it is not something new to me or my wife, although we don't know it all, we do have a great understanding about it and collecting it, and have an extensive Rare Library of the old collectors books and unpublished magazines and manuscripts on the subject which helps us learn and understand more each day. Although we live in Alabama right now, we still travel to the southwestern states scouring North, South, East and West of each state, up and down the old untraveled back roads no one else does, finding forgotten mine sites and rare minerals and have a great reputation with some of the oldest Indian trading posts in the southwest and with the Individual Native Americans them selves, so you may know you are buying from a very experienced collector of Native American Indian Jewelry, which you can see by the unusual and unique items we bring to , and have done so for over 10 years, longer than most of the sellers selling Native American New Jewelry now, and we sell Turquoise Jewelry necklaces, rings bolos belt buckles, bracelets, and, Kachinas, Pottery, Rugs, Blankets, Art Work and more, if you have any questions, or looking for that special piece to fulfill your collection, please feel free to email us and let us know.
