CAN I HAVE A BRACELET RESIZED?

We leave the natural patina on our jewelry because many of our customers like the old "vintage" appearance.

Paula say: "I've shown this bracelet to a number of my learned turquoise colleagues and the consensus was that this is Bisbee turquoise, but then I reposted it to another group of long-time jewelers and collectors and although some still thought Bisbee, it was also suggested this could be very early Morenci, Castle Dome or even Kingman, so I think I will just say a big hunk of beautiful turquoise and leave it up to you to do your own research and form your own opinion."

Our Rescue Mission
of
Native American Indian Jewelry and Artifacts

We are in the Native American jewelry rescue business and are passionate about finding new homes for used and 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 shop that will complete yet another circle of our jewelry re-homing mission.

NOTE: Items in our Shop are either USED or NEW. They might come from inheritances, estate sales, private collections, and store liquidations. Many items are brand new (, 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. Shop items are sold as described and are not returnable
