About the Royston Turquoise Mine

Discovered in 1902 in Nye County, Nevada the Royston mine is the oldest patented mine in Nevada. Royston turquoise is known for its beautiful deep green to rich light blue colors. The stones are often two-tone, displaying both dark and light green and sometimes blue. The heavy matrix ranges from dark brown to gold in color. Royston turquoise is considered very collectible.

Paula says - "Most leather concho belts are quite adjustable. You can adjust them to fit a smaller waist by punching additional holes in the leather. You can slide the conchos along the the leather to adjust their spacing closer together or farther apart. You could even remove one or more conchos if you want to make the belt very short. Also you could cut excess leather off the tail end of the belt. To make a belt larger, you can purchase a leather belt of the proper length and put the conchos and buckle on the new belt."

Our Rescue Mission
of
Native American Indian Jewelry and Artifacts

We are in the vintage Native American jewelry rescue business and are passionate about finding new homes for used and vintage jewelry and artifacts. That's why we purchase Native American pieces from estates, inheritances, collection downsizing and New Old Stock (NOS) inventory from closed stores.

Often people contact us after taking a box of Native American jewelry to their local pawn shop and find that a pawn shop is mainly interested in melt value of the metals and not in preserving the beautiful historic pieces. To hear that people have considered selling these treasures for melt value makes us truly sad.

Melt value is usually far below what we would offer for the jewelry. Yet we can't pay retail price for items because of the time and cost involved in finding new homes for them. We have to research, often repair and restore the jewelry, photograph and list each item on our website, and sometimes hold pieces in inventory for years until the right buyer comes along.

We hope you'll find something special in our vintage shop that will complete yet another circle of our jewelry re-homing mission.
