Turquoise jewelry has been admired and collected for centuries. Old pawn jewelry is unique in that, for the most part, it was created by and for Native American people themselves. Native American families traded this jewelry to reservation trading posts in payment or as collateral for items they needed or wanted that came from the outside world. When their sheep were sold or sheared, they would likely reclaim their treasured pieces with the payment they received. Sometimes, however, the pawn jewelry was relinquished and, after a period of time, available for sale.
Each old pawn jewelry piece comes with its own history and when created from high grade natural turquoise, it is collectible not only for its intrinsic beauty, but for the value of the stones, the weight of the silver, the craftsmanship and the age of the piece as well.
