Native American Jewelry Blog tips and iinformationThe San Diego Collection

San Diego Pawn CollectionThe items in the San Diego Collection came from an estate collection of a California widower. His wife had collected Native American jewelry during the 1960s - 1980s and was particularly fond of Navajo Squash Blossom necklaces and Santo Domingo stone and heishi necklaces. She also had a very nice collection of bracelets, some of which were made by artists whose work is now highly collectible.

NOTE: Items in our Vintage 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. Vintage 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.
