About Our Watch
When we sell a watch cuff, we sell it in
the condition it was when we received it. Some of our customers purchase these
watch cuffs for their collections, others to wear, so we leave everything AS-IS
and let you decide.
This watch came with the Nadia
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
cuff resized or replace the timepiece or battery but your local jeweler is 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

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
Red Coral is the common
name given to Corallium Rubrum and several related species of marine coral.
Red coral is a collection of hundreds of tiny animals living
together in a colonies that resemble small leafless bushes growing on dark, rocky
seabottom. The coral skeleton is composed hard calcium carbonate,
colored in shades of red from pale pink to deep red. It can be semi-translucent
to opaque. It is naturally matte, but can be polished to a glassy shine. Red coral
is frequently dyed to enhance color and it can also be impregnated with resins
or epoxies to fill surface fissures and flaws.
jewelry has been found in ancient Egyptian and prehistoric European burials. The
Romans believed coral could protect children from harm, as well as cure bites
from snakes and scorpions and diagnose diseases by changing colour. Read

of Native American
Indian Jewerly and Artifacts
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.
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.
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.
hope you'll find something special in our vintage shop that will complete yet
another circle of our jewelry re-homing mission.
