Paula says - "The gold in this bracelet has many years of patina from storage. We leave it that way so you can choose whether you want to wear it as vintage or buff it to a brilliant shine. The photo above shows a similar bracelet of my own before and after I buffed it with a polishing cloth."

What Does Gold-Filled Mean?

Gold-Filled (GF) is a layer of gold 10K or greater mechanically bonded under heat and pressure to a base material, then rolled or drawn to a given thickness or gage. Gold filled jewelry has a surface layer of gold that is very thick compared to gold plated or electroplated items. Gold-filled jewelry are considered LIFETIME products, and the gold layer will not quickly wear off, as it does with gold plated jewelry.

To be called gold-filled, the FTC (U.S. Federal Trade Commission) requires that gold makes up at least 1/20th (5%) by weight of the total product. Legal markings are 14K, 12K, or 10K Gold-filled (G.F.) and the karat measurement of gold content MUST be part of the marking or designation.

White Buffalo Navajo Pawn Collection White Buffalo Collection

We recently purchased a large collection of vintage but unused Native American artifacts including jewelry, rugs and pottery. It was part of the estate of a Navajo woman who was a missionary that worked with Native Americans in Four Corners - the area of the American southwest where four states meet- New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado. As a single parent, she raised 5 daughters and a son while also providing food, shelter, and clothing to less fortunate people that needed assistance. Often she was thanked for her help by gifts of Native American items.

Most of the items in this collection are from the 1970s to the 1980s. We offer these items to you with great respect and with the information we received from the family plus our research.

We named the collection after one of the pieces in the group, a hand carved Navajo fetish necklace honoring the Sacred White Buffalo.


Native American Jewelry Blog tips and iinformationBUFFALO MEDICINE - The appearance of White Buffalo is a sign that prayers are being heard, that the sacred pipe and Spirit are being honored. White Buffalo signals a time of abundance, prosperity and thankfulness. Buffalo was the major source of sustenance for indigenous cultures of the plains, giving meat for food, hides for shelter and clothing, and Spirit Medicine. The Medicine of Buffalo is prayer, gratitude and praise for that which has been received. Buffalo Medicine is also knowing that abundance is present when all relations are honored as sacred, and when gratitude is expressed to every living part of creation, recognizing the sacredness of every walk of life.
