Store Policies

  The Colorado Collection

This ring is from a collection of Native American pawn rings we purchased from a couple who had a store in the 1970's in southern Colorado. For 20 years they purchased rings during trips to Gallup and Zuni, New Mexico. After closing their store in the late 1990's, they continued making two or three trips a year to New Mexico to add to their inventory and also traveled around to Native American shows and Pow Wows. The years finally caught up with them and they decided to retire so their inventory went up for sale and we were fortunate to purchase some of it.

NOTE: Items in our Pawn Shop are either USED or NEW. They might come from inheritances, estate sales, private collections, and store liquidations. Many items are brand new (NOS, New Old Stock) and in perfect condition while others may show tarnish, scratches and other signs of use. Major issues will be described in detail and shown in photos. Pawn Shop items are sold as described and are not returnable.
Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
