Native American Necklaces by Tribe
The Native American tribes have been making necklaces out of natural materials for thousands of years. The earliest known pieces were rudimentary, the tools and techniques have evolved over the years. During the 1800s, the Spanish introduced Natives to silver-smithing and they have since been using the skill, making fantastic pieces for trade and sale. Using sterling silver, Native American necklaces are often imbued with natural gemstones, most significantly turquoise.
Zuni necklaces are heavily steeped in Native American culture, using various animal symbols to make the piece truly unique.
One of the main reasons our collection is so stunning is because of our Navajo necklaces, particularly the Squash Blossom necklaces. These stunning works of art are intricately beaded together with rich sterling silver, set with a dazzling array of gemstones.
Hopi necklaces are rare! With only about 10,000 members within the Hopi tribe, if you come across one of these treasures, hold on and never let go. Be cautious, some stores will feature Navajo pieces that have Hopi symbols and try to pass them off as authentic.
