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

Paula says - "There are two similar techniques of using very small pieces of stone set in individual bezels to decorate jewelry. Needlepoint is comprised of long, straight, narrow stones. Petit Point is comprised of teardrop-shaped stones having one rounded end and one pointed end.

"I could call this ring Peedlepoint, a cross between needlepoint and petit point, but I'll stick with needlepoint.. By any definition it is beautiful.

"On the back of this ring is written "BRENDA BOONE ZUNI" in black marker. In addition there is a silver plate with an animal that looks either like a cat or a teddy bear. We were unable to find information on the artist or hallmark.

"Paula says: "Are you wondering why this item is not described as Native American? You can find the answer by clicking here."

Store Policies

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.
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.
