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.

Paula says - "Natural red coral set in serrated bezel and accented by sterling silver leaves and vines over an oxidized black sterling silver background. This ring was made in the 1970s but was never used - it is brand new vintage!"

CAN I HAVE A RING RESIZED?

The Silver Fox Collection

Horsekeeping LLC Native American PawnThis collection of jewelry was purchased in 1978 by a professor at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque who was very interested in who had intended to start a small business selling Native American jewelry. He bought the items from a friend who worked for Frontier Trading Post and Silver Fox. His plans for a turquoise jewelry business never materialized and the collection has been packed away since then, until we recently obtained it. All items in The Silver Fox Collection are vintage but unused.

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.

Our Rescue Mission
of
Native American Indian Jewerly and Artifacts

Native American Jewelry blog tips and informationWe 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.
