Paula says - "The band of a 3-wire bracelet is made by forming three separate wires and joining the ends. This makes a large base to attach decorative elements and also makes the bracelet cooler to wear. Read more . . .

"In my opinion, this bracelet shows all the design characteristics and workmanship of being Navajo made. But because there is no hallmark that we can attribute to a specific artist we can't legally sell it as Native American made - read more."

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 jewelry, new or old, check out our handy silver cleaning and polishing cloth.

Horsekeeping LLC Native American PawnThe Auntie T Collection

Old Auntie T had a great eye for vintage Native American jewelry and collected for many years. She often purchased highly collectible, important pieces that had one small stone missing or a very minor area of damage.

When she passed away, she left the items to her niece who admittedly had no interest in them yet was reluctant to let them go. We gladly restored these items to their original glory and are offering them with respect to Old Auntie T. Good eye Auntie T!!

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.


About Royston Turquoise

Royston turquoise mine (Nye County, Nevada). Discovered in 1902 it 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.

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.

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.
