What is Chip Inlay?

Chip inlay is a method where cavities in jewelry are filled with a mixture of crushed stone, typically turquoise and coral, and epoxy resin. The piece is then polished smooth after the resin has hardened. Navajo Tommy Singer is credited for first using chip inlay in Native American jewelry.

We leave the natural patina on our pawn jewelry because many of our customers like the old "vintage" appearance. If you'd like to clean up your silver jewerly, new or old, check out our handy silver cleaning and polishing cloth.

Paula says - "You are buying two watch tips. The term Watch Tips refers to the two Native American made decorative panels that connect the timepiece to the expansion band.

"We include at no extra charge an expansion band and the new timepiece pictured here. (None of these are sterling silver nor Native American made). The timepiece will be running when it leaves here. We are selling you the tips only - the timepiece and band are included free of charge, we make no warranty on the timepiece or band. With that said, I have never had one of these watches fail me, but then I don't wear my watch in the shower or while doing dishes."

Band and Timepiece Replacement

If you want to replace the timepiece or the band but your local jeweler is not familiar with Native American jewelry, we can recommend an excellent shop that we use for all of our jewelry repairs. After purchase from us, you can send the watch to them for a new watch face, and a face lift - anything from a light cleaning to a full polishing. - Paula
