How to Choose and Fit a Cuff Bracelet

What is a Cabochon?

A cabochon (also spelled cabochon) is a gemstone that has been shaped and polished to form a convex (domed) surface, as opposed to a faceted surface. A cabochon is typically oval and has a flat bottom.

 

We recently purchase a vintage Native American collection from an acquaintance who had inherited his grandmother's jewelry. To the best of his knowledge, his grandmother acquired the pieces in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s from Navajo and Zuni artists in Arizona and New Mexico and from local Native American jewelry dealers in California.

We have found many artists’ hallmarks on the items and recognize the work of a number of artists. On others we will provide all of the information we can and welcome questions. Some of the items were obvious favorites and were worn often and have a warm patina while others were treasured, collected, stored in a drawer, and look almost new. As we list these pieces, we will differentiate between them and our new Native American jewelry by using a different color page and by calling these "Pawn" even though they technically are not Pawn, but that is often a word used to describe pre-owned vintage Native American jewelry. Read more about Indian Pawn.

We will list each of these items in their appropriate category (such as bolos or bracelets) as well as in a special section in our Pawn Shop.

If you have any questions, please contact Paula at . She would also welcome any information you might have about any of the artists or pieces. Thank you !
