Paula says - "The sterling silver in this large pin is very heavy and the stone inlay is gorgeous - charoite, opal and turquoise. There are silver channels in between the stone pieces which is characteristic of Navajo work.

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

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.

About Native American authenticity.

Squash Blossom CollectionSquash Blossom Collection

We recently purchased items from the personal Native American jewelry collection of a Lumbee-Cheraw woman. The Lumbee-Cheraw tribe is from North Carolina. She received these pieces from 1989-2002 as gifts for various accomplishments such as scholarship, graduation and promotions. Some pieces are from that era and some are from much earlier - the 1960s and 70s. She understood that all of the pieces were Native American made and were Sterling Silver. She provided us with a few artists' names. Others we recognized and researched using our experience and our Native American references. As always, we will tell you as much as we know for certain and suggest possible artists when the artist is unknown. Enjoy browsing this varied and beautiful group.
