Although Native American Jewelry can be dated back to 7000 B.C. The type of Vintage Jewelry that dates back to these ancient times mainly consisted of shells and beads, not the traditional Jewelry we are used to seeing of today. Shell beads, bone and antler carvings were the main components of ancient Native American Jewelry. In addition to these abalone, Mother of Pearl and Spiny oyster were also commonly found in ancient Southwest Native American Jewelry. Copper was probably the first metal used in Native American Jewelry and is still used today along with Sterling Silver and Gold. You will find an unbeatable selection of all types of Native American Jewelry from Alltribes!

Today Native Americans incorporate many different types of semi precious gemstones and metals into their Native American Jewelry. Turquoise & Coral are today the most common stones used in Navajo Native American Jewelry. Depending on the tribe, the styles and methods can vary. Navajo silversmiths are mainly noted for their Squash Blossom Necklaces and Concho belts as well as large raised freeform Turquoise Bracelets. Native American Jewelry has long been enjoyed as both decorative objects and as a form of jewelry expression. As with any art form, an understanding of the beauty of Native American Jewelry is enriched by an understanding of its origins and its development through time. Modern Native American silversmiths have spread their talents and skill around the world and it is the Navajo, Hopi and Zuni in the American Southwest that have mastered it.
