About Our Watch Cuffs

We sell a Native American watch in the condition it was when we received it. Some of our customers purchase these watches for their collections, others to wear, so we leave everything AS-IS.

This watch pendant came with the Armitron Diamond Quartz timepiece shown here. There is no warranty on this timepiece. It will be running when it leaves here.

If you want to have the timepiece or battery replaced but you or your local jeweler are not familiar with Native American jewelry, you can find contact information here for a shop that we use for jewelry repairs. After purchase from us, you can send the watch to them for service. - Paula

As with a cuff watch, this timepiece is secured by two metal tabs. In order to set the time, straighten one tab (bottom tab in above photo) so the timepiece can pivot out to access to the stem. The watch is then put back in place and the tab bent over to secure it in place.

ABOUT TURQUOISE

Turquoise is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It is known as a master healer stone as it is believed to help speed the healing process. It is also thought that turquoise can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart.
Turquoise comes in all shades of blue, to blue-green and it is the natural variations in turquoise that make it appealing. The color of turquoise in American Indian jewelry ranges from brownish green to bright blue. Found in veins sandwiched in between layers of mother rock, turquoise can show some of the influence of the mother rock in its matrix or veining. The matrix colors range from blue to golden brown to black and sometimes with golden flecks. Many people prefer turquoise with matrix over clear stones. Read more about stones.

About Lapis Lazuli

Lapis is a deep blue stone often with gold flecking that twinkles like stars. The name lapis lazuli is a combination of the Latin word lapis ("stone") and the Arabian name azul, meaning "blue."
Denim lapis is a light bluish-white form of lapis lazuli. This stone comes close to the color of faded denim material, hence the name.

Many ancient cultures believed that lapis lazuli contained magical powers. In the Middle Ages, monks powdered the stone and kneaded it into dough with beeswax, resin and linseed oil, for use in illuminated manuscripts. Today, people around the world consider lapis lazuli to be a stone of truth and friendship. It is reputed to bring about harmony in relationships and to cleanse the mental body while releasing old karmic patterns.

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.
